VIEWS FROM THE STREET

Are you taking care of your health?

Yes, more or less. I go to the gym 3 times a week and I watch what I eat. If you don't watch out for your health, about my age issues will start creeping up on you.

My health sucks. You run yourself down in Tokyo, it's too fast paced, too busy. On top of that it's polluted, although I take herbal vitamin supplements. I used to get seriously ill once in 4 weeks, but since I started 4 months ago I've rarely been sick.

Yes. I play tennis regularly and windsurf. I have to go to Enoshima to windsurf, because Odaiba is too dirty. I used to go cycling, but I don't have enough time. I'm healthy, but it takes effort.

I'm healthy enough. I eat my vegetables. I don't have health care, but I'm optimistic. I go skateboarding or run up the stairs on purpose. A healthy frame of mind is the most important thing.

No, I don't really think that I'm that healthy at the moment. I need to lose some weight. I think it's the food here in Japan, and the work schedule. I just can't seem to find enough time for exercise. But my wife says it's because I only eat meat.
