Every House a 'Shoes-Off Home'

My main task during my short-term mission trip to Japan was to put leaflets through peoples' letter boxes. When I am doing that in England (usually on behalf of the Conservative party), I look for clues that the owners of the house might have a shoes-off policy. It was amazing in Japan going past each house in the knowledge that every single one would have a shoes-off policy.

What sorts of clues would those be and hoe frequently do you see such clues?

Shoes outside the door or in the porch would be a clue. But it would not prove any fixed policy.

One of these days, maybe I will see a sign on the door. I thought I saw one from a distance in Droitwich.
