The allergy is caused by pollen of a Japanese cedar. The government planted them heavily after lumbering because they were cheap. It blundered about the pollen.

I used to feel pity for those with a mask because it seemed inconvenient and didn’t look so cool. A few years ago, I heard that people without the allergy could start having one anytime if they don’t take precaution.
