I am surprised to see how many Japanese men carry big ladies style hand bags around!!!!!And not just black, brown, white or olive…they are daring enough to carry red and golden also!!!When I asked my Japanese friend she said it is because they find it comfortable to carry big bags as it can hold their wallets, keys, mobile, papers etc.etc….And since most of the people here go home pretty late or not go home for a day or two they carry an extra set of clothes with them too!!! When I searched on the net I discovered it is not just in Japan, but in a lot of other Asian countries too.Well to each its own….
