Hi,guys.I will tell you about average height of Japanese today.
What do you think about our height? Since we Japanese are one of the Asians,you would come up that we’re not that tall compared to Caucasoid or Negroid.It is true. Although my height is 174 cm(5ft8.5in) and my friends are almost like this,I can see lots of people below 170cm(5ft6.93in) on the street in Tokyo.Let me show you the statistics of average height of Japanese as follows.
①What is the average height of Japanese ?
According to Japanese government in 2018,the average height of 24-years-old men were 171.8cm(5ft7.64in), 24-year-old women for 157.7cm(5ft2.09in). Compared with those of the 1900’s in Japan,that list men at 160.9cm(5ft3.35in) and women at 147.9cm(4ft10.23in).
It is said that one of the main reasons we have grown significantly is “balanced school lunch” we usually eat from elementary to Junior high school.To be honest I didn’t like it,but had no choice but to eat.Some of the teachers were kind of strict and forced me to eat one when I was a elementary kid.The following picture is a school lunch that provided.
All of the buildings,trains,cars,houses are made for these Japanese average height.If you are tall like over 185cm(6ft0.83in),you would feel uncomfortable living in Japan.
②How much is the Japanese average weight?
In 2018,the average weights for 24-years-old men were 69.5Kg, 24-year-old women were 50Kg. Since I’m not quite sure for the statistics of other countries,I guess these numbers are not way too high or low.You can compare above Japanese numbers with those of your countries and leave your comments here on this blog.I’m just curious of each country’s one.Looking forward to seeing you.
Thank you for taking the time and reading my blog today.
