When visiting Japan, one of the first things you have to get used to is taking off your shoes before you enter homes, schools, and many restaurants. Your street shoes are left at the entry way which is called a genkan. Shoes are removed so that no dirt gets on the floor of the rooms. Japanese slippers are called surippa. (Taken from Western idea of slippers!!)
Slippers are not worn in rooms with tatami mats.
There is definitely some etiquette about Japanese slippers. Toilet slippers are to be worn in the toilet room ONLY. Japanese people will know you are an American if you forget and wear your toilet slippers in the other rooms of the house!!!!
Many Americans have feet larger than the slippers supplied by the host. Maybe you will want to bring your own slippers when you visit Japan!!!
Schools have rooms that hold all the street shoes of the students while they are in school. During the school day, students wear a special slip-on-shoe that stays at school.

HOW TO MAKE SLIPPERS
Slippers can be made by knitting a pair of gigantic socks at a very loose gauge, then slowly felting them either in the washing machine or by hand to a custom fit.
If you've never knitted socks before, these slippers are ideal. They knit up quickly with worsted weight yarn and large needles and the felting process is very forgiving of errors. In the end, it's nearly impossible to tell they were knitted at all!
Knit the cuff and foot of these socks on a 16-inch circular needle, using double points to work the heel and the toe after there were too few stitches to fit on the circular needle.
If you're knitting slippers for young children or for use on slippery floors, you'll want to attach a non-skid sole for safety purposes.
For different sizes: Take the total length of recipient's foot and multiply by 1.3 to determine the required total length of sock before felting. Then determine length of sock to knit before beginning toe decreases by subtracting 3.5 inches from total required length.
Felting the slippers by running them through the wash cycle of washing machine set on 40 C [105 F] with a tablespoon of a mild liquid soap and a towel for added agitation. It is essential to check the status of the slipper every few minutes and stop the agitation process when it reaches the desired size.
Rinse to remove the soap residue and spin to remove as much water as possible, then either form to shape and leave to air dry or put them on over another pair of socks and walk around for a while to let them form to your feet perfectly.
