It is Illegal to be Overweight in Japan
I cannot imagine any Japanese who looks obese , Because most of the Japanese are lean and thin may be many of them will be underweight, As per the Statistics only 3% population of Japan is obese. But still the Government is strict about the health of their citizens and have passed a law called as Metabo law -
Metabo law says, Every individuals who is in the age group of 40-75 will undergo annual waist measurement check up, For men the upper limit is 33.5 and for women the upper limit is 35.4 inches. it's a interesting law, I hope it will get launched all over the world soon.
I can guess the next question from you, is there any punishment? short answer is NO, But people whose waist measurements exceed the limit are required to attend some counselling classes and are motivated to keep their waist line thin by regular phone calls and emails from the Japanese Government.
