    I can understand people wearing masks in the tsunami zone but does anyone know why so many people wear them in Japan?

      If you live in very dense cities, it’s easy for disease transmit very quickly. You see this trend with asian cities like Hong Kong as well. Also some food sellers just wear masks just because.

    #2 – we lived in Japan for three years and I think there are multiple reasons for wearing masks.
    I was told that if you are sick you would wear a mask out of consideration for others.
