The radio gymnastics(ラジオ体操)

I think it’s good to wake up in the morning and do gymnastics as the beginning of the day.

Japanese people all learn the radio gymnastics in elementary school, so any Japanese knows it. But when I was a child, I didn’t like it. This is because I have to go out every morning on 6:30, even in the duration of summer vacation.

At Nagai Park in Osaka, the radio broadcast starts at 6:30 in the morning, and many people do the gymnastics there. It takes about 10 minutes to do the second exercise. After that, people resume jogging or go home.
