One of the things I so miss about Japan are Oshibori, damp hand towels given out at restaurants.
Many cheaper places have plastic wrapped paper oshibori but many restaurants have the wonderful cotton towels I know and love.
Here is a early morning delivery from KCC, before a restaurant opening for lunch. Depending on the season they will be put in heaters or coolers.
I must admit on a hot, muggy, humid summer day in Japan to sit down to lunch and have a cold towel delivered to you is absolute heaven.

Thanks, sleepytako !
