Japan Photo #33 Answer

We had some great guesses for this photo question.

They ARE packets of tissues. More specifically they are advertisements on the backs of packets of tissues. These are often given out at train stations or on busy city streets for the purpose of advertising a product/company/event etc.

Yes you can use them for toilet tissue and I have, when caught short. But most Japanese toilets have toilet paper supplied.

This pack was given to me just yesterday.
These are super handy, especially when you have kids! I always carry some around with me. When I run out of freebies, I have to actually buy some. No worries, you can buy several packets for 100 yen at a 100 yen shop.
