Behind the masks, courses are opened in Tokyo to teach you to smile
Japan and especially Tokyo is one of the countries where the anti-Covid mask was faithfully worn.
Now that the masks have been removed, several courses have been created by professional teachers to teach people to laugh again.
The Asahi Shimbun, from the Osaka newspaper, took part in one of these smile classes. He joined the group with 37 other students that included different ages, including seniors.
"With masks, people have had less opportunity to smile. The 3-year period influenced the creation of a complex", said ia.
The high number of participants in these courses are women. A session usually lasts 45 minutes. Exercises include muscle relaxation.
