Small Omotenashi - Oshibori

Do you know oshibori?
To put it simply, oshibori is a mini-towel provided to customers mainly in restaurants. Before enjoying the delicious food, wipe your hands with it and then you can say "Itadakimasu". This is very common in Japan.
In addition, when you finally arrived at the inn for that night after a long, happy journey, a warm oshibori provided by the landlady would make you relax; or when you finished haircutting at a beauty salon, you could wipe your face with an oshibori given by the salon to refresh yourself after sitting for too long. Oshibori is not only a small hospitality offered by the shop side, but also an item that softens customers' hearts.
