Shoe Factory that accommodates FREE field trips
---


Japs Shoe Factory is one shoe factory and shoe store in Marikina City (the Shoe Capital of the Philippines) that accommodates field trips for FREE! Bus loads of students and tourists go to this place to watch how shoes are made by hand.

Why the free field trip accommodation? The owner, Japs, explains that there is really no need to charge fees ... the children or students normally come in with their parents... the students go around the assembly line and get to learn how shoes are made ... and, while waiting, the parents get to look around the store and, almost always, they will buy some shoes to bring home.
