Interesting Japanese custom Vol.28"Japanese and Masks"

Hello, I'm Takeuchi from the Shimbashi business garden.

When you visit Japan, you will see that many people are wearing masks. Probably, March or April is the peak season because of the hay fever.

Also, there are a lot of people wearing masks in this season because of the cold temperature. Because Japanese are wearing masks immediately for prevention, foreigners may think that the disease is contagious.

At first, you will be surprised. However, you will perceive that this action is not only for the prevention of illness but also the consideration when they get in touch with the other people in a small space.

Though there are various ideas depending on a country, Japanese may be too sensitive to contact with the other people.
