Radio Taiso – ラジオ体操

“Radio taiso” are a kind of exercises to warm up in the mornings that are practiced by many Japanese people since the end of the Second World War. One of the main goals of performing “radio taiso” is the reinforcement of the cooperation and unity spirit of all the participants. It is always carried out in groups, usually in schools before starting classes and in companies before starting the working day. It is another example of the collectivist behavior of Japanese society.
