Re: Fear of Feet

[ Edited ]

In the Japanese culture, feet are unclean.  (They are right, of course--feet are picking up floor dirt all the time.)  There are special slippers for using the toilet in a house, and they are left in that room.

 

People going to worship in a Buddhist temple have places to store their shoes. 

 

It's not a phobia, I think.  Japan is the size of California, except only 10% of it is (densely) populated due to mountain ranges in the middle of the archipelago (Japan is a chain of many, many islands).  People live in close quarters.  They are considerate of others, clean, and thoughtful.  People wear shoes with socks.  The shoes are removed always on entering a private space.  They are removed when entering a sacred space as well.

 

In Japan, feet can be clean but our shoes are never clean.  I don't feel this way myself, but don't see it as phobic.  It is just careful about cleanliness.

 

That care is one reason that it is a delight to visit Japan.  The trains are washed down after each journey is completed.  Fast food sandwiches in the convenience stores are changed every hour or so.

When I read this thread I thought of the movie "Boomerang" with Eddie Murphy that was a womanizer and wouldn't date a woman if she had "ugly feet".
