No it isn't SARS, and it isn't being considerate because he has a cold or
anything like that.  The Japanese love using cedar wood to build everything,
so they have replaced most of their forests with rows and rows of cedar 
trees.
The problem is that every spring.  All of those trees kick out huge 
quantities of
pollen, which unfortunately many Japanese are allergic to... Thus every 
spring...
Out come the masks.  Its amazing, you go up towards the mountains when
the pollen is at its peak and you can see clouds of reddish brown pollen
blowing off the mountains.
