People shouldn't blame the people wearing mask in Japan too much because you don't know how bad pollen is (I lived in Tokyo since I was born for 20 years so I know what it is -- you develop bad allergy with runny nose and sneezing. Do you know that even some monkeys in mountains suffer from this?http://metro.co.uk/2013/03/17/gallery-japanese-monkeys-suffering-from-hay-fever-3546547/). You also don't know how packed Tokyo subway can be. It's the main transportation system in densely populated cities, and it is the politeness of the people not to spread virus or cold to wear masks. Still, people wearing masks in UK signify how ignorant the Japanese can be to the outside world. It's bad.
