Dear Japan no koto,
Excellent article! If it wasn’t for spiders, this world would be overrun by insects. But does that endear spiders to most people? Hell to the no!
I was always raised to respect spiders, especially the light-colored ones. So unless the spider rears up on its hind legs & hisses at me in my own house, I leave it alone. And outside of my house I never, ever bother them, admiring their webs & their work.
