Posted in: Why do Japanese people wear surgical masks? It’s not always for health reasons See in context

I used to think masks were quite weird when I came to Japan, and I do have girl classmates who quite often use them. However, I've got quite used to using one as well. I don't know if it protects from influenza or not, but it does give a certain security feeling. Even if it's just a little bit, the probability of getting it should be reduced. Even if the virus is small. Of course it's not perfect. There are no perfect antivirus, lol. Even if you wash your hands during 30 seconds and use alcohol and blablabla, in the end you have to put your hand in the handle of the toilet door to open it, so your are infected again lol xD I think it's part of everyone's common sense, what you should do or not. Well, but if you don't want to worry about those things, there's another thing that the mask protects your face from. Cold xD

I go to the Imperial Palace to run once in a while, and indeed there are a lot of people walking there. When you want to pass those people I think simply saying "sumimasen", slowing down, and waiting for them to move is the normal thing to do lol. "Oh look at me, I'm a pro runner so get out of my way because I'm going for the world record!" Jerks. As a pedestrian, I have had that problem, mostly with bicycles though. Like coming at high speed towards you, when you have full right to walk on the walkways. And then the "rin rin" noise of them really pisses me off.

So much anger in these comments... Japan has so many good things to offer, I don't understand why people do nothing but criticize it...
