What is hay fever?

Hay fever (花粉症 in Japanese, pronounced as かふんしょう or kafunsho) is a type of allergy you can get by direct exposure to small, light, and dry pollen grains that travel by the wind. Hay fever is not just a headache for the Japanese but also for foreigners living in Japan after a few years.

Specifically, symptops for pollen allergies include sneezing and coughing, runny/blocked nose, red or watery eyes, itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears, loss of smell and taste, headahce and feeling tired after being outside for a while.

When does hay fever happen?

Pollen grains, known to be the cause of hay fever in Japan, come from 3 types of tree: hinoki, batasuka, and sugi trees. In most cases, pollen allergy is caused by direct contact with sugi’s pollen grains. Sugi, or Japanese cedar tree, is widely used for building materials such as pillars in Japan. Every spring, these trees begin to pollinate by the wind. Their flying pollen grains cause at least 25% of the Japanese population to acquire hay fever.

For some foreigners living in Japan after a few years, the immune system against pollen might be weakened. Even if they never caught hay fever before, as they are staying in Japan for some time, they can still become susceptible to hay fever just like the Japanese.
