Do you know the occasion that gave rise to Health-Sports Day? The Tokyo Olympics. Its grand opening ceremony took place on October 10, 1964, amid much fanfare. Two years after this occurrence, Sports Day was proclaimed a national holiday on October 10, 1966. Following this, Sports Day was moved to the second Monday in October starting in 2000, in accordance with the Happy Monday System. Japanese kindergartens, schools, businesses, and local associations across the nation perform activities such as track meets on National Health and Sports Day. In addition to relays and races, there are also other, more playful competitions like scavenger hunts, tug of war, and toss-ball. The entire family can take part in other events, including sporting festivals, fitness competitions, and marathons during autumn. This season is also regarded as the sports season in Japan, making it perfect for Japanese people on Health and Sports Day. Each town also puts on a sporting event. These consist of marathons, bowling, and events where parents and kids can enjoy Frisbee. Adults can also have health evaluations in some regions to become more aware of their own lack of activity.
As the World Health Organization (WHO) says, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Be sure to stay healthy not only today, but 360 days a year!
