Uwabaki
*** qte from wikipedia ***
Uwabaki, are a type of Japanese slippers worn indoors at home, school or certain companies and public buildings where street shoes are prohibited.

Japanese culture mandates that people should remove their shoes when entering homes and other buildings, especially where the floors may have rugs, polished wood floors, or tatami (grass mats). Uwabaki are light, flexible shoes which are easy to slip on and off, designated for indoor use. As they are not generally worn outside, the soles are kept clean, and thus cleaning and maintenance of the building's floors are kept to a minimum.

At the entrance of every school, from preschool to college, there is an assigned locker for each student to put his or her uwabaki. A student's grade level is often indicated by a colored stripe across the toes; the body color of the slipper is always white.

Please tell the bands coming to Japan to bring their own "uwabaki (shoes only for indoor)" for performance. Otherwise they will sometimes be asked to perform with slippers on or only with socks on.

Here're some links about the culture of removing shoes.
