Trend Hunter reviews Mechakucha

The Trend Hunter website has found a new emerging trend: foreigners in Japan who wear face masks.  And it’s more true than used to be the case – I’ve seen plenty of foreigners this winter wearing masks.  Maybe on doctor’s orders like me the other week, or maybe it’s really catching on.  I expected people to stare at the funny foreigner wearing the mask, but nobody flinched – except some foreign tourists I walked past in Shibuya.

Trendhunter on Mechakucha

Can I claim to have started this trend on this site?  Well, I’ll leave that up to your judgment.

Possible other face mask trends include colours.  On the train the other day, I saw a lady wearing a pink kimono with a matching pastel pink face mask.  My local convenience store didn’t branch out that much with its product range!

Thinking of emerging trends, there’s a faint glimmer of possibility that other sites will occasionally link here.  The nice people at Share This reviewed this site a few months ago along with others that use the Share This button at the end of each post.

    Absolutely, you are a trend leader!

    You can get colour masks in web shops like this one (http://www.idrugstore.com/details/detail.asp?B=5&M=51&S=167&PID=869).

    Thanks Kohei, I’ll have the 50 pack of orange ones please! What a bargain for only 2,000 yen.

    Let’s get Jamie out of the office and go for a beer again soon.
