Hijiku -
I think you heard a rumor. I did a google search, and if DDR were banned in Japan, I would expect I would have found some news story on that. I saw no results for that in the first 5 pages.

Now, with that said, you can get a bit of a work out from that game, and when someone in poor shape does a strenuous workout without appropriate preperations, injury or death are possible. (This is why you should work out regularly to stay in shape, and if you are out of shape, work up to the strenuous workout.)

The DDR pad in my local Gesen, as well as the fact that a new version came out early this year lead me to believe that you heard a rumor. ;)

Maybe you heard some schools are trying to ban students from playing it? I remember the Jr High I was at had rules about what students could do on the way to school and back. (no video games, no soda pop, etc)

You could go home, then go play video games and drink soda right?
Regardless, america could use the blueprint for japanese schools. Our kids would be so much better off.
