Why do Japanese like to wear masks
This article is excerpted from Vanke.com, if you have any questions, please call: 18116628077
There are so many people wearing medical masks, which is an amazing sight in Japan. It is true that Japan has a hard-working social culture. People always worry that diseases will spread in schools or offices, which will hinder work and study. But this does not seem to be enough to explain the popularity of masks-sometimes, Tokyo offices are more like operating rooms.
Recent studies have found that health concerns are only one of the reasons why Japanese people wear masks, and several factors have nothing to do with hygiene.
Until not too long ago, most of the "mask monarchs" were people who were already sick. If you feel unwell but can't ask for leave, the usual polite way is to cover your mouth and nose with a mask to avoid spreading the virus to classmates, colleagues or passengers in the same compartment while breathing.
But the situation began to change in 2003. This year, medical supplies manufacturers released a mask designed for people with pollen allergies. Prior to this, most masks were made of cotton, with a small pocket on the inside for gauze. After the mask is used, throw away the gauze, wash the cotton mask, and then put in new gauze for next use.
The pollen allergy mask is made of non-woven fabric, which can block pollen particles more effectively. Moreover, it is completely one-time, and the price is low, so there is no pressure to buy in bulk. The appearance of this new type of mask changed everything. Market research agency Fuji Keizai said that non-woven masks now occupy 86% of the Japanese market.
With this cheap and easy-to-use product, it has become a more practical way for people to wear masks to prevent illness. In Japan, people often spend an hour or more on the train or bus to and from get off work. The cars are crowded, and not everyone is so particular, they will put down their phones to cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze.
Sales data show that in the past ten years, the use of masks by Japanese people has more than tripled. Among them, the flu panic in 2009 and concerns about radiation particles after the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011 brought peak sales. The size of the Japanese mask market in fiscal 2013 is estimated to be 23.9 billion yen (approximately $229.8 million).
But as masks have become more and more commonplace, some people have begun to wear masks for completely unhealthy reasons.
A 46-year-old mother said that masks are a daily necessity for her in winter to prevent illness, but her high school daughter wears a mask is another matter: "She will wear a mask and plug in headphones. , So that others won’t bother her. This set of equipment makes it difficult for people to come forward and talk to her."
Adolescent psychologist Fuji Guarun (sound) also put forward a similar view. "When dealing with others, we have to judge whether we should smile, whether we should show anger, etc.," he explained. "You can save this by wearing a mask. The trend of wearing a mask to avoid face-to-face communication may be derived from contemporary times. Many of them are more accustomed to using e-mail and social media for indirect communication."
is a bit nostalgic for the days when children could express "I'm not happy" without relying on gadgets or technology.
The recent popularity of masks is not entirely because people want to be indifferent to others. On the contrary, more and more people choose it to get warmth.
Japan’s winter is quite cold. Fortunately, it’s very fashionable to wear layer after layer of clothing. As the temperature drops, you can arm yourself with tights, vests, sweaters, thick coats, gloves, and hats. But there is one part that is difficult to keep warm, and that is the face.
Of course, you can go to the sports store to buy a hood for skiing, but-let’s leave it alone for the time being, except on the slopes, it’s pretty weird to wear such a thing on any occasion. Now that Japanese society has become accustomed to people wearing masks outside the hospital, you can also wear one with confidence, which will keep your nose and cheeks warm without attracting attention.
Masks can prevent your lips from freezing, compared with the breath of glasses that are only a small price.
Masks are so common nowadays that they no longer detract from the image of the wearer. Not only that, some people have found fashion and beauty uses for them. A professional model told reporters that after the filming, she often washes off her makeup and then sneaks away under the cover of a mask because she does not want the public to see her bare face. Even women who do not live by maintaining their external image find that masks are really useful when they need to go out to do something urgently and don't want to spend half an hour putting on makeup.
