Hay Fever

ponta 204 · March 2

Target Language - English

Hay fever is a serious problem in Japan. Around this season, people become feel uncomfortable because cedar pollen starts to spread. Cedar trees have been planted for a long time to use as lumber, but imported lumber is more reasonable these days. Therefore, a lot of cedar remain and spread tons of pollen every year. Many Japanese people used a face mask before the epidemic of COVID-19, and pollen is one of the reasons.
