Mike and I have now been in Tokyo for nearly one day… We’ll be in Japan for 3 weeks to snowboard, rest, eat plenty of amazing food and enjoy the mountain terrain in Hakuba.
We’ll be travelling from Tokyo to the mountains in three days, and will update you when we arrive. I’m sure I’ll have taken a million images by then!
We’re keen to find out why it is, that some of the populations wears these face masks, and a large percentage do not.
Have you been to Japan before? What were some of the highlights of your trip?
Does anyone have an idea why some people choose to wear these masks?
Holly & Mike
ps: We (disgracefully) do not know the language (only a few words). Despite this the Japanese are so patient and kind to us.
