how do japnese workers do sports after work

Postby peterlij » Sun 11.30.2008 8:16 am

日本の大学に無料の運動場所があると思いますが。でも、会社に運動場所がありませんでしょう。
そこで、日本のサラリーマンは仕事が完了した後で、もし運動でもをしようとしたら、どこで運動をします?
有料のジムがあるでしょう、でも、それは高くないですか?不便な感じもしていますけど。

中国には、ある会社に運動場所があります、そこで、昼休みの間あるいは仕事の後で、運動をすることが出来ます。

there should have sports ground in japanese univesity , but may have not in japanese company.
so , when if workers want to do some sports after their work, where do they do sports?
there must have gyms that charges , but isn't it alittle expensive and unconvient?

In china, some companies have sports ground, so workers there can do sports when it is midday rest or at evening after their work.

ほとんどの人には、有料ジムしかないですね。確か高いのですが、どうしても運動したいという人はお金の余裕を見つけるでしょう。ジムなどのある職場は、とても大きい会社(何千人の社員)じゃないと無理だと思いますが、標準はないのでやはり場所によると思います。運動の大好きな社長がいたら、小さいのにジムがある会社でも可能ですね。そういえば、たくさんの会社はバスケットやゴルフできる設備が屋上にあります。

I think going to a commercial gym is the only option for most people. It is expensive, but if working out is a priority for someone, they can afford it. If a company were to have their own gym for their employees, I don't think it would be possible except for really big companies (thousands of employees). There really isn't a standard, though, so it depends on the place. If the CEO is really big on fitness, I guess even a mid-size company could have a small gym or something. In fact, many companies have a basketball court or driving range on their roofs.

Do most companies still have the employees together to excercise before work starts? I know is the late 80's, early 90's that many companies would assemble together 30 minutes early to have an exercise session.

I saw a documentary recently where companies do have exercise sessions before work. It was light exercise, kind of like Tai Chi.

Then of course, there's karate and other martial arts they can do after work or on weekends, but I believe the popularity of these traditional Japanese sports is declining.

ご回答どうもありがとうございます。
でも、日本の社員は、仕事の後で、何をしますか?お酒しか飲みますか?あまり健康に悪いのに。
