We're flying JFK-ICN on OZ and then TPE-JFK on BR, and BR does give out PJs, so I hate to take a pair with me just to wear on one flight. I...

I have stayed in resort towns before, such as Takayama and in Nagano, where walking around town in your yukata is common, but I think I'll err on the side of caution and change into street clothes...
