Episode 79: The Flu Mask
The Flu mask is commonly worn in Japan and actually throughout Asia. In America when someone wears a mask, they are planning on robbing you. However, here, the mask is worn to prevent others from getting your germs, or you getting their germs. I think people are paranoid.
Here is the story!
If this girl had a Mask on she would possibly be hot, but she looks better without one on.
|Nice Red Bow Without Mask|
Typical Zorro style mask.
Below is a Japanese Zorro Wanna Be
|Sexy Zorro Girl|
But the best masks are worn by Japanese Ninja
|Looks like he has a few weapons.|
Masks come in a variety of designs.
|The Scottish Look|
Never try to suck face with a mask on. Really is tough to do!
|French guy trying to French kiss his Japanese Babe|
This girl had a mask on and got attacked by a killer Rabbit.
|These rabbits are found all over Eastern Europe, but rarely in Japan.|
Some people attempt to draw funny things on their masks.
|Half Japanese with clown mask.|
Masks are often put on Jizo, which are statues dedicated to children that have passed away or aborted in Japan. It is to protect them in the after life. Abortions happen in Japan all the time.
Here is a real cutie with a mask on.

Some cultures force their women to cover up, so the inexpensive way to follow this Islamic custom is to do it cheaply with a flu mask. Bin Laden did it too with his ugly beard.
|Lovely Broach puts the finishing touches on this old lady.|
Right now up in Fukushima in Northern Japan where the nuclear crisis is still going on, people are all wearing masks that look like this. They give you one of these when you land at Narita East of Tokyo. Sorry...only kidding! It is safe here.
|Would be cool to wear one of these on the train.|
This cutie is a Japanese girl, and her mask matches her Panties. It is something I have an interest in as an Artist.
|She has them in pink too.|
The following is some bad fail photoshop.
Look at the masks. The straps are the same on both masks and the clown never removed a black line on each.
|Crappy Photoshop Adventure. The creator needs to go to http://www.photoshopuser.com/ and learn something.|
Sometimes funky glasses work well with a flu mask. These two Japanese are surfers. That is why they are tan.
|These Japanese are not black. They are just tan. The spot on the head means that one of them has converted to Hindi.|
This is not a real person. I did not want to pull the wool over your eyes.
|Plastic Head with Plastic Mask|
But here are a couple of Wooly Sheep Masks
|Japanese Sheep Girl. She is very wooly all over her body too.|
These two women are from a stock photo company. Notice the number written through their face. I could easily remove it, but do not want to waste my time.
|This photo must be owned by someone. I hope they do not see my blog.|
Cute Japanese teen with a mask and sexy bunny ears.
|Her name is Kumiko|
I am not sure what kind of mental retardation causes this, but some people cannot seem to put the mask on the correct side of their head. Sort of like "Striker" having that drinking problem in the movie "Airplane"
|Girl in the back could sure use a mask.|
Is this a copyrighted picture of "American Idol" ???
|I hate that stupid show.|
English teacher in Japan thinking he looks cute in this mask. Lots of dorks come to Japan to teach English, because they cannot do anything else. Sort of like failed models in America. They come to Japan and the men drool over them, so the girls think they are good looking and important. They even get into Ropongi Clubs for free.
This mask on the girl with the big brown eyes is actually a bandanna. Spell check says there are two "N's"in the spelling of Bandanna. I do not believe them. But if this is true, then Banana should have more "N's" too.
This mask will not help with the flu, but it is still cool and scary.
This girl below here should wear the above mask to make herself look better.
|Ms. Rita Rancher|
A see through mask is kind of interesting.
|Was on a Japanese Health and Acupuncture Page.|
Fun masks are widely available here in Japan. Tokyu Hands, and Don Quixote often have a good selection. The newest one is of Osama Bin Laden with a bloody hole in its head.
|I just love the horse head!|
Here is "The Partridge Family"
|That show was my favorite.|
"The Beverly Hill Billies" Was another great show. Here is Granny Clampet in her Halloween Mask.
There are a whole bunch of people that are not Japanese getting into the mask thing too.
Not really sure what is going on here, but I like her mask.
|Japanese Practice Voodoo|
Some Japanese people I know want to be Eskimos.
|Sato-san wants to be an Eskimo|
Kobayashi-san wanted to try out for "The Wizard of Oz" and be the "Crowman" if he only had a brain.
|A Brain...A Heart...and Courage.|
This Japanese Doctor looses patience with his patients, so he wears weird masks.

|Japan's number one swine|
It is the job of old Japanese women to collect the cotton and make the masks. This is a modern factory in Fukushima Prefecture in Northern Japan.
|State of the art factory. Hit by Tsunami, but cotton dries out quickly.|
Two cool Japanese people.
Typical scene in a typical metro underground subway station in Yokohama Japan.
Even store promotional clerks wear masks. You can eat for free in many places in Japan, especially on Sundays in basement food stores in nice department stores. I do it all the time.
These four girls got it all wrong.
|It says Kega Doll, which means Dolls with Kega.|
I think I used this girl in one of my blogs in the past but not sure how she got into this folder.
This girl is wearing a mask that they call cute. I read the fine print. It comes with a DVD. Sure wish I could find the page I took this from and order it.
This woman always sucks on her mask after eating Natto, which are those smelly rancid beans. That way she keeps the smell with her all day long even after brushing her teeth.
And last but not least is a fine looking Japanese specimen that we do not want to put a mask on, as it would cover up too much of that beautiful face. The cowboy hat is good enough.
