annamasse - Japanese mugicha is barley tea :) Barley tea is quite refreshing, and great on a hot summer day, or with spicy foods (like Korean hot tofu soup).
Caffè d'Orzo: The Italian Espresso That Isn't Actually Coffee

I lived in Japan for a couple of years for work. The reason they have these is because many homes in Japan still use traditional tatami (rice straw mats), which become easily indented or even torn from the furniture legs. They sell socks for chairs/tables, or they also sell tiny little pillow cushions which you can place underneath for larger legs which the socks may not fit, which protects the flooring. We used these in the apartment we were renting to keep the floor looking like new. But we didn't use it on everything, and after only a few months, we'd already find scuffs and tear marks in the flooring...
