Face masks are a necessity these days and there are many options out there. You can shop online, make a no-sew mask yourself, visit this new mask speciality shop in Tokyo Station with more than 200 options, or get one for free from Japan’s anti-coronavirus mascot Koronon. However, if you’re a pet lover, you’ll want to get your hands on these quirky animal masks available through Galleria International.

The adorable designs emphasise the animals' big round eyes and expressive mouths, and they are reasonably priced at ¥1,078 each. Plus, the polyester-fabric masks are washable and reusable.
