In the West, people focus on muscles, and exercises often mean muscle training, but in Japanese natural health, bones, joints, fingers, and toes are as important and we spend a long time adjusting them.
I have been doing some endurance activities, such as 47 km Hinoichi Nordic walking or 150 km Biwaichi cycling. This is to commemorate my 60-year-old birthday, testing my fitness level to see if I am still capable of doing these intense activities, but are they good for longevity?
Now that I have completed 47 kilometers Hinoichi Satoyama Nordic walking, I would like to try Biwaichi cycling as part of my 60-year-old birthday commemorating events. Biwaichi means cycling around lake Biwa, which is the biggest lake in Japan.
