Outfits which new student of a junior high school has to buy = 89,290 yen ($884.06 €633.26)

My son will enter the junior high school from April. Before it, I had to buy his outfits at the school-designated stores with the fixed price. The school designated outfits, then students are not allowed to use other outfits. I think there are some exceptional cases for transferred students from another school.

The total cost of outfits was 89,290 yen ($884.06 €633.26). It is expensive. The following table shows the price of outfits I bought for my son.
