Japanese Coast Guard = White hull with blue diagonal stripes (similar to USCG).
Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force = Gray hull (similar to USN).
That’s very conservative attire for a sailor compared to some wog outfits I’ve seen.
I don’t recall the uniform of female Japanes Coast Guard .
But my ship was boarded by them when my ship was hit by a Chinese coastal freighter(hit and run).
At least there were no skirts, if my memory serves.
