Hello everyone. I'm punk. I'm Japanese and 20 years old now.
I want to know your other country's culture because I am going to research to wash the hands rate in other country.
Please answer the below questions!!

1) How many do you wash the hands in a day?

2) Do you wash the hands before eat ?

3) If there is not the soap when you wash the hands, are you all right??

4) Do you know the OSHIBORI(a small damp towel)??
OSHIBORI is like this→[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f3/Oshibori.jpg]

OSHIBORI is a Japanese traditional goods. If you went to the Japanese restaurant, you can recieve it and almost of people wipe hands.
Can you feel relieved that use the OSHIBORI instead of wash hands??

5) Where is your country??

Question is over. I'm waithing for your answer!!
