2. This year in particular has record levels of both local pollen (hey fever) and "yellow sand" (pollen, Gobi dessert sand and of course pollution) blowing in from China. The media has been hyping this just like American media hypes whatever the latest calamity to assault us is. A quick look around my office right now tells me about 75% of the staff are wearing masks.
Well I seriously hope this starts trending in America. Nothing's worse than seeing someone loudly sneeze all over their hands and sleeves and violently rub their noses and then reach for a door, rail, or other object that others have to touch. I wonder how many people will stare at me or downright approach me if I wore one of those masks while out taking pics....

I've been stoned out of my mind in the exact same swing this guy is sitting in! Albeit at 2am. Great place for hanami too.
You nailed it.

Just like in the animes. This really captured Tokyo in a new way for me.
