Japan is a beautiful country. The green mountains, blue sea, vibrant culture and its mouth-watering cuisine, everything adds to its beauty.
If you’ve travelled to Japan or met Japanese people, one thing might have crossed your mind: “Why are Japanese women so slim and look so young?”
It’s the cuisine and lifestyle of Japanese people that keep them healthy and young looking. For example, Japanese food is based upon the principle of health and longevity. In fact, Japan is home to the world’s highest proportion of people who live more than 100 years.
In Japan, food is not solely eaten for taste. Japanese people believe in extracting health benefits from their food.
Here are the top 10 reasons why Japanese women stay slim and don’t look old.
1. Drinking Green Tea
2. Consuming Fermented Foods
3. Popularity Of Seafood
4. Eating Smaller Portions
5. Walking Is A Ritual
6. Eating On The Go Is A Big No-No
7. Healthy Cooking Methods
8. Practicing Martial Arts
9. Hot Spring Baths
10. Healthy Desserts

I stopped this at 37 seconds because it annoys me to be treated like an illiterate imbecil. I came here to see a video. NOT have text on the screen read to me! Text that I can read MUCH faster than the pathetic announcer in the first place!
It's nice video to cover most of our habits✨Of course gene is one of the reason which effected from our healthy diet and life style for thousands years.
But many foreigners living in Japan become slim and healthy (looking younger) to follow our diet and life style!
Not only Japanese but Koreans and Chinese are same. It is because they think slim body beautiful than thick ones and asians have smaller bone structures than westerners. And asians look young because they have many fat on their face and they have thicker skin and some genetic matters maybe
You missed a few other reasons why Japanese women and men (Asians in general) stay slim. 11) They dont consume a large amount of pop soda or sugary drinks that contain 32-64 grams of sugar as found in most American soft drinks and energy drinks. 12) They don't consume GMO laced foods filled with synthetic additives that trigger brain cell neurons to consume more food/drinks, etc. 13) Because roads are narrow in Japan, etc, more people walk or ride bikes to get around town than drive cars. This is not just daily exercise. It is an active way of life. 14) Japaneses and Asians, due to their smaller bone structures, mass, have a naturally higher metabolism than the typical European body type. They can burn off the calories faster while not consuming as many calories. This makes sense based on genetic history. The ancient Japanese were a seafaring and agricultural based society. Over 1000s of years, their survival genes relied on planting crops on limited land resources while fishing in the seas for their protein needs. Saving massive land resources for raising cattle, livestock, meat in general would've been a waste of limited resources. Fish and rice was the way to survive. 15) Finally, there is/was religion. In Japan, both the Shinto and Buddhist religion emphasized a vegetarian based diet. Eating pork, beef and even chicken was frowned upon. It was a delicacy reserved only for the Aristocrat class, and sparingly at that.
Japanese woman respect themselves and think carefully about what they eat, I also heard a rumour that Japanese women are the prettiest woman in the world? Let me tell you, its not a rumour it's true. Everything about the Japanese lifestyle is impressive and inspiring, the rest of the world can really learn a lot from Japan. 😁❤️
I think it's genetic. A lot of Japanese women look so much younger than their real age. Once at party in Manila I started flirting with what I thought a Spanish girl my age because she had white skin. I was 20 and thought she was around that age. We started to heat up. But she cut it and she introduced me to her husband whom I thought was his father. They have a daughter who was 8. So I asked for her age and I couldn't believe she was 32. She said she got it from her Japanese lineage because her father was Japanese.
Yes indeed, it is very easy to look young and healthy when you're 18 and have gorgeous breasts. Health freaks just love to claim Americans are fat. We have over 320 million people, not hard to find some fat people. If you don't like fat Americans, stay in Japan.
When I was recovering from heart surgery I had a Japanese nurse. I thought she was a kid of about fifteen. When the low heart rate buzzer went off I though she would do something dramatic like on TV. She was busy a distance away and I felt compelled to say something when she didn't seem to be responding. I had been watching my heart rate on the monitor and it was slowing going down. She came over and looked at the monitor and then typed in some data resetting the lower limit, and the warning stopped sounding. This happened a couple of times, and finally I asked her if there was some lower limit where we should be actually concerned. I forget what she answered but her manner didn't suggest any reason for alarm. Still I was a little concerned as I thought she seemed so young and finally I asked her age. She replied with a question asking me how old I thought she was, apparently it wasn't the first time any one had asked such a question. I told her I thought she looked about 15 years old. She said that that was what most people guessed, but that she was actually 31years old. She was as cute as could be, charming in a quite way and professional, so I just relaxed a little, while keeping an eye on the heart rate read out and finally it stopped it's down ward trend and stabilized. I could certainly understand why men have found Japanese women to be so attractive.
There is a rise in Japan for colorectal cancer. It has been found that consumption of shrimp can cause it. These findings came from reports. Eating raw meat causes cancer and eating raw fish can be contaminated and result in illnesses.
Plenty of what is said here is true in terms of what foods and activities will make you healthy. As to who are doing these things, it's not all true. One thing left out (I know it was to be only 10, but probably this is bigger than many of the listed reasons) is that Japanese women avoid sunlight, whereas in western society, especially EU they would rather tan, even under lamps. This is the number one skin aging factor. Of course there's also genetics involved, but as for wrinkles in the face, it probably has more to do with the fact that they don't express emotions in their faces much. This is something that is taught at a very young age - so be pleasant and polite to everyone (what happens when they are alone or at home is different).
It's a shame that western influence is changing all of this. In some ways I like it, since I'm American it makes society more compatible for me, but in terms of health, it's detrimental. Japanese people (and most of Asia) now do eat plenty of fast food, are now drinking more coffee than green tea, more and more cars and scooters instead of walking (although you'd never know in Tokyo at rush hour on the trains LOL). They eat plenty of fatty food, foods and snacks full of chemicals, etc. Lastly, the comment about not even watching TV during meals or not eating fast is very wrong, and hasn't been true for a long time. This is a TV crazy society, and when at home especially almost always watch TV while eating. And for taking time eating... niet! I thought I ate pretty fast, usually finishing my meals before my family and friends in the US... but here, I'm often the last one eating. They can suck down a big bowl of Ramen in 5 minutes, no lie. It's amazing. Not healthy though. LOL
Moral of this epic comment is that if you follow what's in this video you'll do better than you would if you didn't.
Not all Japanese women in Japan are slim . Because of western food that crept into Japanese society like Kentucky fried chicken, Popeyes Chicken , Mc Donald’s, Pizza Hut . I saw a lot of big girls when I was over there in the military.Then the ones that are slim look sickly . They have no muscle tone and a bunch of cellulite . Every now and then you would see a couple that was totally legitimate babes but that’s just like anywhere else in Asia. But still a lot better than America fat USA .
Chopsticks do not hinder anything!! Haha.. I eat plenty fast with them! I eat until I’m full! There are lots of fried food in Japan! Martial arts! Haha. I love videos from someone who does not live or probably has never been to Japan! Fish?! We eat meat in Japan too! Lots of delicious food in Japan! We don’t go to Onsens 2 times a month! I have lived in Japan 4 years.. I have been to onsen 3 times! Portion size and control is the only thing right and walking! Get your facts man!
The sweet taste alone is considered disgusting in Japan. "Amai" which means sweet, also means "naive" and is used for scolding. This probably is simply a matter of history and tradition, but as an effect the sugar intake in Japan is very low compared to other nations worldwide and makes people thinner. Another reason why people look younger is the climate. There is a very high humidity in Japan, which is much more suitable for our skin, there is a constant moisturizing effect. On top of everything the water in Japan is extremely soft, whenever you take a bath, a shower or wash your hands, it is very gentle on your skin.
There are Fat Japanese in Japan as well as all of east Asia. Not counting those who do overeat, the east asians who are fat are that way for the same reasons that westerners do. For those who are overweight it is a body malfunction of one type or another, and without a radical medical intervention can do nothing about it short of not eating at all.
rancid pitts this is exactly true. It is the doctors responsibility to test and treat overweight. It causes high blood pressure, triglycerides, cholesterol, diabetes, fatty liver, heart disease, cancer. I went to a doctor and said I could not lose weight and wanted to, even if I did not eat I would not lose weight, they said don't be concerned about losing weight now. That is a no good doctor. It is prevention for heart attacks too. They don't know what they are doing.
Eduard Stancu Japanese people don't fat shame.
They just ask to to lose some weight on ur earlier stage before it gets too late. I don't think Japanese people bully or call a person worthless for being a fat. They advise u because they care and also people keep an open mind to receive opinions from others whether they consider it or not. I guess fat shaming was againt bullying fat people(which is legit), but Idk how it eventually turned out as "fat is beautiful" movement.
Eduard Stancu you have to eat, not eating causes belly fat. Your body needs nutrition, vitamins and minerals that other parts of body needs. Raw red meat and shrimp can cause cancer. Not being able to lose weight is a medical condition that a doctor needs to diagnose, for example; intestinal obstruction, thyroid, liver, insulin resistance and more.
STOP EATING and it is a chance that those problems will disappear. I am not for raw food. I used ketogenic diet or green vegetables with some little meat. Fasting too work for many people. No fruits or sugar.
More than 80% of overweight is due because people eat to much.
No. Be thin is never look young. Make look older to be too thin or more like a boy. We can eat many as long they walk alot. Eat so little and can walk alot. It will not have enough energy. So they need to eat in depand if you are feel full. I really hate anorixy girls or wanna to be boy. I prefer plump and curvy who look more like a real woman than being boy-looks.
why japan, all those that were mentioned were from China. The fact is Japanese developed a lot of unhealthy food which you do not find in China, MSG was invented by Japanese, excessive sodium is actually harmful to your body, ramen noodles from japan is another bad product, chemically processed. Many Japanese people have tapeworm in their body due to consuming raw fish. It is in Oriental's gene that make us look young anyway, Chinese, Korean, etc, not just japanese.
I disagree that they look any " younger " than other population groups! I also think that when doing an analysis of anything it's best to draw a 2 columned table with + and - headings. Japanese goods have many positive attributes and some negative as well.
Some are not Japanese stuff. The clothe woman wearing is not kimono. Kimuchi is Korean food. Flaming teppanyaki thing is not traditional. That is the more recent entertainment show especially in foreign countries.
I spent 3 months traveling Japan and staying with a lot of friends of friends, so I ate mostly Japanese food, and did a lot of onsen hot springs, walking, hiking, and laughing as Japanese like to laugh as much as anyone. Result was I felt healthier and stronger in Japan than at any other point in my life. I watched this video because I want to get back to that good feeling of fitness. Japanese know how to live right generally and it is very safe for people because the crime is low compared to other countries. I also found Japanese more likely to go out of their way to assist or help a foreigner than in other countries although everybody has different experiences. My memory of Japan will always be positive and hey, most of the girls are very pretty and sweet there so a man can't go wrong in Japan.
Don't look old?!!!! Everyone looks old when they grow old! Even Japanese women.
I agree when they're younger they look younger than westerners due to their petit slim frame and baby faces but when they get old, I prefer westerners. Japanese seem old baby faces which is very strange and baffling.
i agree with what you said i do prefer korean than japanese, cause when they re still teen or highscooler they look so cute and young but after ther mid 20, they absolutely change like ajhuma, act cute innocence but poor they too old to act like that its so freakin annoying
Are you beautiful?? Why did you say that? You’re a racist. I’m married to Japanese and my husband mom is very beautiful even though she’s already 81 yrs old she looks young. Japanese women are beautiful and most of them are slim.
So it has got nothing to do with genetics? I'm 1/8 Japanese (also Indonesian blood Russian and Holland) been living pretty unhealthy, drank a lot, been smoking for almost 20 years and people still think I'm in my early/mid twenties. I'm 30
Cay: It is with the younger generation, they want their noses more projected and narrower,
and double eyelid surgery is the number one procedure in Japan to try to look more caucasian
But like it was taboo in the west in the 80s to talk about it, it prob still is in Japan
laser skin resurfacing, Botox and fillers, and fat injections are all growing in demand.
The trend is quick recovery treatments—no pain, no swelling, no one notices
Eyelid Surgery: 138,990
Fat Grafting: 33,404
No its not. While plastic surgery is popular in Korea, its culturally frowned upon in Japan. I work for TBS (TV company) as a translator and not a single entertainment person has had any kind of surgery for alterations in mainstream media.
Yeah, I think you forgot reason number one: Genetics.
All asian women tend to be smaller, have narrower hips, and an overall smaller body frame. This tends to reduce accumulation of fat in the area of the hips and buttocks, where most women gain weight as they age.
If I lived in a culture where healthy, tasty and interesting food was everywhere I'm sure my health would stay better over the years, but unfortunately healthy food here is mostly boring making it harder to eat well.
Unfortunately, Japanese (and Korean), and thus, all asian women age, and get old, fat (it's fate), and ugly at the exact same rate & way as every other human female on the planet does. Just they dye their hair, wear make up and clothes in a style & fashion only a 14 year old would wear anyplace else. Do that at a false, societal mindset where they think themselves doing it at a much more higher rate than elsewhere, but turns out it's done at exactly the same rate as any and all over human societies where women are a part of those as well, so if this same mindset were applied to women of other societies, they also do things in an exact same fashion to appear younger, so they think they don't look old, and also pride themselves in much the same way as Japanese women do, but would be old there, too.
Robert Fox only people who are ugly are people who use the word. You except people for who they are. You will be judged by God at the end of your life for everything you do, say and think, everyone's life is recorded in Heaven. Get ready judgment is coming. Have you lived for God?
Steve B053 the only thing that is ugly is people who use the word. It is an offensive, vulgar and insulting word that should not be used. People with refinement and intelligence do not insult People. People are only a mirror reflection of what you are. Your soul is evil and hateful.
John Harvey Gutierrez - Japanese people *LOVE* McDonalds. And they're favorite food for Christmas is KFC. They have to order 10 weeks in advance to ensure they're get their chicken on Christmas Day. The video is a hoax.
John Harvey Gutierrez a lot of Japanese people eat crazy fast food.
They are more healthy looking than average Japanese though but still thin for American standard because Americans have wider bone structure or slower metabolism or maybe both. Simply put.
They already have an upper hand biologically.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
