Do you know Japanese people wear Masks even in the office while working? :?:
Many foreigners, especially Westerners, find this situation very surprising and often wonder Why do people in Japan wear masks (http://questionjapan.com/blog/location- ... ear-masks/) so often?

Well, actually, there are many reasons for it not only for health like:
1. Health
2. Fashion
3. Cover Up
4. Anti–social
