national malady pollen allergy

Most Japanese suffers from pollen allergy.
This is the “national malady”.

There are many kinds of pollen allergy,
cedar,cypress,rice, ragweed… and so on.

Especially from March to First of May,
it’s really hard…
keep on sneezing, fever, like a cold.
So, many peaple wearing a mask to prevent pollen.
Sometimes this mask is useful for ladies because no need to put on makeup :-)

Some people cannot hang the washing out on the balcony
because pollen will stick to the clothes!

Take care!!
