Foreigners in Japan should stop whining and put a mask on - Nikkei Asia

Quick Summary

Ironic to imagine that the country that brought masks to Japan's shores actually helped to foster so much in the way of anti-mask sentiment and now prides itself on not making its citizens wear them.

As Japan moves to open its doors, ever so slowly allowing foreign tourists back in, one issue of note for many is how we can get visiting foreigners to follow the mask rules.

In the cold and flu season, masks help to keep the spread of infection at bay, and, for hay fever sufferers, the modern mask can really help.
