Japanese Culture/Japanese Getting Taller?


ed wrote at 2015-04-28 04:20:13
As a first time visitor to Japan, I can't help notice the same thing. Also notice the difference in size from one neighborhood to another. Now sitting here at Rapongi Hills I notice how tall both the men and woman who walk by are. So is that I had to ask one guy if he wasn't from a different country as there is a lot of embassies in this area. He confirmed he was Japanese. It gave an impression that not only the younger but especially the more affluent ones are really getting taller if not outright gigantic.

Since there are no other experts (ie a native Japanese) for this category, I will stand in in the meantime! I can answer anything about Japanese culture, festivals, language, daily life, the people.


I have a BA Japanese major, I have lived in Japan for 5 years and am currently living in Tokyo. I speak and read Japanese (started studying 15 years ago). I became very involved in Japanese life and have many Japanese friends.
