The Japanese, men, and women, although belonging to an evolved people and rich in ancient traditions, certainly do not enjoy stratospheric statures. If in Germany the average height of an adult man is 185 cm, in Japan it is already a lot if we reach 170 cm!
Height, we know, can be an important aesthetic factor on which to judge, at least at first glance, but in Japan, it can also be a source of “hidden dangers”. If you are too tall you might hit your head all over the place as Japanese houses and public places sometimes seem very small. !
