Radio calisthenics

Radio calisthenics

Rajio taiso” means Radio calisthenics and it has two ways.
It is exercises of the radio program.
And it is to warm up parts of body before sport.
It has been broadcasted on public NHK radio since some decades.

Radio taiso; has been incorporated at schools for physical education class and the sports day activities.
So everybody knows it very well in Japn.
We would do it during summer vacation when we were children.
I think it maybe aimed to wake children up early morning.

There is also a company that all workers exercise Radio calisthenics before work.
And it is popular for the seniors to annul the shortage of exercises.
