Secrets of Longer Life: Japanese Longevity and Good Health

0 out of 5


Over decades Japan has been consistently recognised for higher life expectancy and healthier lifestyle. What are the secrets to maintain strong health? Although there have been a number of studies made and a clear causal relationship has not been found, it is believed that the secret of long life in Japan is a combination of diet, exercise, connection to nature, hygiene and ikigai (生き甲斐 ‘joie de vivre’ or reason for being).

In our previous talks we discussed some parts of this simple formula (i.e. Japanese food, Tea ceremony or Shintoism). This talk will focus on a holistic approach, exploring how all these areas of life jointly form a unique philosophy of living and how having a purpose in life and engagement with community work contribute to health and life expectancy.

Approaching Shunbun no Hi, the Japanese holiday during the vernal equinox, we would like to invite you to celebrate the arrival of spring, a symbol of new life and explore the Japanese approach to a long life and vitality.
