There are many curious things which you see in the land of the rising sun. One such oddity I will simply call ‘the white glove curio. Seeing men and women – though particularly man wearing these white cotton numbers is a common occurrence: riding a bicycle, walking the dog, taking the train, repairing a bicycle, vacuuming the car or just for keeping the hands warm during a winter walk or run – you will see the magic white gloves.

Rice farmers, traffic controllers and road workers also all sport them and they can be purchased in the large hardware-type shops like Home Center, Cainz Home etc. This is something I’ve only seen in Japan – maybe this curio is a spin-off from the obsession many Japanese have with cleanliness?
