Hi,friends.How are you doing today?
Japan is in the middle of CORONA PANIC.
Most of the Japanese are looking for masks,toilet papers,sanitary napkins in whole day.We know that have to be calm down and put up with this abnormal affair,but since Japanese government is also out of control,have no choice but to do something we protect by ourselves….
By the way,I will write about HAY FEVER(KAFUNSHO) today.Because Kafunsho is one of the things that really annoy people coming from other countries.
WHAT IS KAFUNSHO??
It is said that 50% of Japanese living in metropolitan areas suffer from Kafunsho,a kind of hay fever caused by the pollen from cedar or Hinoki cypress trees.From March to May,lots of Japanese start to wear white masks made of gauze when they go out.Some even wear glasses and hats to protect themselves from Pollen,which causes various uncomfortable symptoms such as a runny nose,headaches,and itchy eyes.They say that more people have started suffering from Kafunsho in the last 20 years because the cedars and hinoki-cypress planted in the mountains or forests throughout Japan after the war have been neglected,are overgrown,and create more pollen.When floating pollen in the air mixes with dust and exhaust from automobiles,it causes kafunsho.
HOW TO SURVIVE FROM THIS TERRIBLE POLLEN IN JAPAN
①WEAR A MASK
Wearing a mask is really helpful to avoid invading pollen from outside.
As for me,I can’t live without one in Japan.
②USE A FACE SPRAY
If you are women and don’t wanna ruin your makeup with wearing a mask,you should use the face spray as following pic.It’s easy to use and the used for sensitive skin.
③TAKE A MEDICINE FOR POLLEN
If the above two ways were not good for you,you have to take a medicine for pollen.You can buy one on Amazon or any drug store in Japan.
