Now in Japan, it’s allergy season. Japanese people are in pain now with runny noises, itchy eyes, headaches, etcâ€¦
When I first came to Japan, I was confused to see people walking around wearing surgical masks. I asked my wife why so many people were wearing these masks and she said itâ€™s because of they have allergies and they may have colds and want to keep their germs to themselves.
When I first saw these masks there was only one color, white. But now, I see people like the one in this pic. â€œFlower or designer surgical masks?â€ Now thereâ€™s a market for some savvy marketer.
Here is one of my Japanese students having a hard time with cold he’s been trying to shake.
