Hi there!
I dont think they ever had camo uniforms in production, but often in the field they would make adjustments to their uniform. In these photos I would say they had dyed it, they also would put extra stitches for foliage on their hats and uniforms in a zig zag fashion. Hope that helps!

Different Japanese units had different uniforms at different times throughout the war.

In Manchuria for example the uniform was desert brown, khaki and even darker browns for shirts.

In the Pacific things changed and light green and even blotched uniforms were possible. However these were custom jobs. Standard issue Japanese uniforms were not usually camo but a solid colour...

However soldiers were very inventive and many attached camo cloth, or pieces of foliage by scrim nets and other means.

I have seen a huge variation in different units... most soldiers by 1941 were in rags :D
