Japan is one of the first countries to enter the aging society, and we have already had some experience in this field. It is a country with the most centenarians per capita in the world, with 61,568 people who are over 100.
Okinawa, which is famous as a part of Blue Zones, ranks 10th in the number of centenarians per capita in Japan, meaning there are many other prefectures in Japan with high number of centenarians.
I think it is a lot to do with our lifestyle including our diet, and I would like to share with you the Japanese secret to leading a healthy long life.
I am 56 years old now but I have been diagnosed that my vascular age was 21 years younger. Many people tell me that I do look much younger than other people in this age group, and I haven’t had any problems in my medical check ups.
Another word, I am probably healthier than the average Japanese people who look younger than the average people in many other countries.
In this blog series, I would like to share with you not only the Japanese secret but also my secret to leading a healthy life. My secret isn’t necessarily the same as the Japanese secret because I have lived differently from the majority of Japanese people. In my opinion, the Japanese way of living isn’t always healthy if you include happiness in the definition of health since many people in Japan live with stress whether they lead a traditional lifestyle or modern lifestyle.
There certainly are a lot of keys to health and wellness in the Japanese lifestyle but they need to be refined. I am going to present the refined version of the Japanese secret.
