Lovin Japan ~ Shoeless!


What's not to love about a country where life slows down just a bit each time you enter or exit a home  as well as many places of business.


This sign will move with us
Entry ways are a bit lower....slippers ready to slip on...shoes left waiting to slip on when you leave.

Temples, churches and onsens always provide slippers

Many restaurants as well - though many don't have lockers for your shoes.

This one surprised us...but obviously one should remove shoes before entering a dressing room. 

And always, always, slip into toilet slippers before entering the "bathroom." This also seems like a wise practice.

I love it, too, Mom. One it's just relaxing but, two it helps keep the carpets and floors cleaner. LOL
