Many French people (as well as Westerners in general) do not like or are not used to wear masks!

In Asia and in Japan, in particular, this is part of everyday life, as citizens do not want to infect/contaminate their fellow citizens.

Following the CORONAVIRUS crisis worldwide, health authorities are strongly recommending to wear masks in order to avoid spreading the virus as well as getting infected oneself. Some people however refuse to comply with this, ignoring the warnings and various messages on TV, as this is part of the local culture.


If you want to know more about #JapanCross-cultural Management, you will find more information in our book: “Bridges to Japanese Business Etiquette: Understanding Japan Cross-cultural Management”.–e-book.html

Wishing you a nice reading!
