Okaido Shopping Mall - Matsuyama

Japanese drug store. Much is made about how the Japanese prefer name brands and expensive goods. That is true when it comes to gift giving. On a daily basis, when it comes to personal consumption, the Japanese are as frugal as it gets. They like good deals.

Hats are popular in Japan. One of the many things I enjoy about the Japanese is their sense of fashion when it comes to hats. Even older people are into their hats. There is a sense of dignity when it comes to hat style.

Bowing is customary in Japan. Women like to know what they look like from behind when they greet company.

I do believe that women also watch men from behind. :D
To me, male's hands matters a lot. I don't know why. ;)

Yes but when you purchase clothing, don't you want to get an idea what it looks like worn?
