Question: When I get a “お手拭き(ote-fuki, meaing: a hot towel)” , what should I do with it?
Answer: お手拭き is provided to you as a means of sanitation for your hands. DO NOT WIPE your face with it. (though it is tempting to…) Some Japanese men will do this, but if you are non-Japanese you should avoid doing so.
