Outline:© 2017 Human Kinetics, Inc. Background: Sedentary behaviors (SB) are associated with health indicators; however, there are currently very few studies that have examined these associations, especially in conjunction with psychological factors, in children. The current study examined the independent relationship between objectively assessed SB, and indicators of obesity and psychological well-being, among Japanese children. Methods: A total of 967 elementary-school children completed a cross-sectional survey. SB was measured with accelerometers for 7 consecutive days. Psychological well-being data (eg, anxiety and behavior problems) were collected via a self-report questionnaire. To determine the relationship of SB with degree of obesity and psychological well-being, linear regression analyses were conducted to relate the indicators of obesity and psychological well-being on SB, adjusted by gender, grade, percentage of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per day, duration spent wearing the accelerometer, and degree of obesity. Results: SB was significantly related to behavioral/emotional problems (β =.280, P =.010, R 2 =.015). There was a statistically significant relationship between SB and anxiety (β =.206, P =.059, R 2 =.007). No significant association with degree of obesity was found. Conclusions: Excess SB relates higher levels of behavioral/emotional problems and anxiety. These results can inspire the development of interventions that promote well-being and enhance psychological health, by focusing on SB in Japanese children.

Newspapers could provide effective and comprehensive information about cancer to the public. The present study conducted a content analysis of cancer-related articles in Japanese newspapers published in 2011. In total, 5,314 articles were identified and subsequently coded. Coding variables included cancer type, the cancer continuum, and topic of articles mentioning cancer. Approximately half mentioned at least one specific type of cancer, with the focus mostly on lung, leukemia, and breast. Stomach and colon cancers, which have the highest morbidity, were relatively underreported. The continuum received little attention, and was mentioned in only 11% of articles. Treatment was the most frequently mentioned part of the continuum, with prevention and screening mentioned only rarely. The most frequently mentioned topic was social issues. The findings suggest that cancer-related articles were found regularly throughout the year, meaning that they might be one of the most important sources of cancer information. However, they are affected by social issues and there were some imbalances in both cancer type and continuum. Considering the influence of newspapers, it would be helpful for providing more effective and accurate information to the public if Japanese newspapers increased mentions of specific types of common cancers and the cancer continuum, especially prevention.

Outline:

Objectives The present study investigated articles on cancer prevention published in Japanese newspapers in 2011.

Methods A content analysis of news coverage on cancer primary prevention and screening was conducted. Articles which mentioned cancer risk, prevention, and screening were extracted. For all articles on prevention, the newspaper's name, month of publication, and information source were checked. Coding variables for articles on primary prevention included causes of human cancer, risk and/or prevention, and recommended screening criteria. Cancer screening articles were classified according to four coding variables: cancer screening site, subjects for screening, examination interval, and whether to promote the screening.

Results A total of 272 articles were identified and subsequently coded as either articles on primary prevention or screening. The number of articles on primary prevention was 208. The focus of these articles was mostly on food/nutrition (n=56), cancer-causing infection (n=40), and smoking (n=32). Alcohol drinking (n=12), exercise/physical activity (n=11), and obesity (n=10), which are also major lifestyle factors for cancer, were rarely mentioned. Moreover, cancer risk was more frequently mentioned than prevention. The recommended criteria for major lifestyle factors were mentioned in 13 articles. Screening was mentioned in 92 articles. Breast cancer screening was the most frequently mentioned (n=31). The screening of colon (n=18), cervical (n=18),stomach (n=15), and lung cancer (n=10), which are recommended by the cancer control act, were mentioned in less than 20 articles. Seven articles on screening indicated subjects and interval. Only 39 articles discussed cancer-screening behaviors.

Conclusions Articles on cancer prevention were found to be published in Japanese newspapers. However, the number of articles on both primary prevention and screening was not enough, and there were some disparities in the lifestyle factors and specific type of screening that were mentioned in these articles. Considering the influence of newspapers as a source of information on cancer prevention, it is necessary to encourage publishers to increase the number of published articles on cancer primary prevention and screening in Japanese newspapers.

Outline:    Recently, the carry-over of physical fitness or physical activity from childhood to adulthood has been actively discussed. However, the carry-over effect of participation in organized sports is not well understood, despite the fact that organized sports participation has a number of positive effects on physical, mental, and social aspects. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to clarify the association of organized sports participation during school age with organized sports participation and sports volunteer participation in adulthood. The data was secondarily obtained from “nationwide questionnaire research for promotion of sports activities according to the life stage” conducted by the National Recreation Association of Japan. This research was conducted with 1,200 Japanese adults (612 males and 588 females) who were 20-39 years old. Path Analysis was conducted with respect to each sex. Regarding association of organized sports participation in school-age with organized sports participation in adulthood, participation in elementary school was related to that of junior high school, participation in junior high school was related to that of high school and adulthood, and participation in high school was related to that of adulthood in males. By contrast, in females, participation in elementary school was related to that of junior high and high school, participation in junior high school was related to that of high school and adulthood, and participation in high school was related to that of adulthood. With respect to association of organized sports participation in school-age with sports volunteer participation in adulthood, only organized sports participation in high school was affected in males, and only organized sports participation in junior high school was affected in females. There is a possibility that participation in organized youth sports has a carry-over effect for adult sports involvement. In order to promote organized sports participation and sports volunteer participation in adulthood, enhancing organized sports participation in school-age would be valuables.

Outline:    Considering the benefits of participating in school-based extracurricular sports activities (SBECSA), providing active SBECSA is important. However, heavy burden on teachers in coaching and management of SBECSA has been reported. Additionally, appropriate allowance and role allotment have not been discussed enough. It is necessary to understand the quality and quantity of task-related burdens in coaching and managing SBECSA to promote discussion. Therefore, the purpose of the study was to quantify the temporal, psychological, and economic burdens on teachers in coaching and management of SBECSA. The present study used a mixed-methods approach. Firstly, a semi-structured interview was conducted to clarify the contents of tasks about coaching and management of SBECSA. Participants were 12 teachers who work in junior high school or high school. All interview data was recorded and transcribed verbatim. Through the recording process, 26 contents of SBECSA tasks were grouped. Secondly, a self-completed questionnaire survey was conducted. 200 junior high schools and 200 high schools were recruited. Seventy-three schools agreed to cooperate in the study, and 361 SBECSA teachers answered the questionnaire. Question items were as follows: yearly hours taken for each of the 26 tasks, psychological burdens to do each of the 26 tasks, and yearly expenditure for coaching and management of SBECSA. As results, exact temporal burden for each of the 26 tasks was examined. On average, SBECSA teachers were spending approximately 1,400 hours a year for coaching and management. Regarding psychological burden, there were some tasks which were highly perceived although the temporal burdens were comparatively low. SBECSA teachers were payed approximately 136,000 yen a year to coach and manage SBECSA. In conclusion, SBECSA teachers assumed various tasks for management other than direct coaching. Contents of tasks would affect psychological burden as well as temporal length. Additionally, heavy individual payment for coaching and management of SBECSA was revealed. Increasing support for SBECSA coaching and management is necessary to decrease teachers’ burden and promote youth sports.

Outline:© 2016 Human Kinetics, Inc.Background: This study examined associations of perceived and objectively measured neighborhood environmental attributes with leisure-Time sitting for transport among middle-To-older aged Japanese adults. Method: Data were collected using a postal survey of 998 adults aged 40 to 69 years. Generalized linear modeling with a gamma distribution and a log link was used to examine associations of perceived (International Physical Activity Questionnaire-Environmental module) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-derived built environment attributes with self-reported leisure-Time sitting for transport. Results: Mean leisure-Time sitting time for transport was 20.4 min/day. After adjusting for potential confounders, perceived higher residential density, GIS-measured higher population density, better access to destinations, better access to public transport, longer sidewalk length, and higher street connectivity, were associated significantly with lower sitting time for transport. Conclusion: Residents living in neighborhoods with attributes previously found to be associated with more walking tended to spend less time sitting for transport during leisure-Time. The health benefits of walkability-related attributes may accrue not only through increased physical activity, but also through less sedentary time.

Outline:© 2015, International Society of Behavioral Medicine.Background: Associations between levels of sedentary behavior and depressive symptoms independently and in combination with different levels of physical activity remain unclear. Purpose: This study aimed to examine independent and combined associations of physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior (SB) with depressive symptoms among Japanese adults. Method: An Internet-based survey collected data on depression levels (Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale), self-reported time spent in PA and SB (Japanese short version of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire), and sociodemographic variables from 2,914 adults in 2009. Binary logistic regression analyses were conducted to examine the odds ratios (ORs) for being depressed (depression scores ≥16) according to independent PA levels (none, insufficient, sufficient), SB levels (low, moderate, high), and nine combinations of PA and SB categories. Results: After adjusting for potential confounders, sufficient PA level was found to be related to lower risk of depressive symptoms independently (OR = 0.61), whereas no significant associations were observed between SB levels and depression. In the combined associations, adults in the sufficient PA/high SB (OR = 0.44), sufficient PA/moderate SB (OR = 0.56), and sufficient PA/low SB (OR = 0.57) categories were significantly less likely to have depressive symptoms in comparison with the no PA/high SB category. Conclusion: Meeting physical activity recommendations is associated with a lower risk of depressive symptoms, regardless of time spent in total sedentary behavior. These results suggest that promoting physical activity may be an effective strategy against depressive symptoms among Japanese adults.

Outline:The present study reviewed the current trends of interventions focused on the physical activity environment for reducing sedentary behavior among children. Multiple international and domestic databases were searched to identify studies that involved changes to the physical activity environment, measured sedentary behavior, were specific to childhood populations, and published in a peer-reviewed journal. After studies were carefully assessed for inclusion by examining the title, abstract, and full text, the characteristics of the included studies (i.e., participants, study design, environmental intervention, measurement of sedentary behavior, and results) were summarized. A total of 31 studies (randomized controlled trial: n=25; quasi-experimental design: n=3; within-subject design: n=3) met the inclusion criteria. The majority of studies (n=23) were conducted using school-based interventions focused on the playground environment, involving either one or a combination of the following changes: improved markings, providing play equipment, or offering built facilities. Other studies included in the summary focused on behaviors at home and in the community like using electronic time managers while watching the television and providing low-cost or free entry to safe and easily accessible sports facilities. The measurement of sedentary behavior included an accelerometer, self-report, and direct observation. Twenty studies had a positive effect on reducing sedentary behavior among children. All but two of the studies were conducted in foreign nations. The present findings suggest that improving the physical activity environment to children can reduce sedentary behavior; therefore, further interventions focused on the physical activity environment for reducing sedentary behavior among Japanese children should be conducted.

Outline:Objective: The present study was conducted to examine the effects of providing equipment for use during school recess on elementary school children's physical activity.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 98 fifth-grade children (63 boys) from two elementary schools were assigned to an intervention group (n = 39) or a control group (n = 59). The intervention group received equipment such as volleyballs and oval balls. The children's physical activity was measured using accelerometry before and three months after receiving the equipment. Evaluated indicators were time spent engaging in sedentary, light, moderate, and vigorous physical activity during break, lunch recess, and the entire school day. Analysis of covariance—with sex, body mass index, and physical activity level prior to receipt of the equipment as covariates—was performed to examine the differences between two groups with respect to physical activity after receiving the equipment.
Results: During break, lunch recess, and the entire school day, data were collected from 23, 25, and 18 children in the intervention group. In the control group, it was done from 41, 42, and 37 children, respectively. During break and lunch recess, the intervention group was less likely to engage in sedentary behavior (p = 0.01, p < 0.01) and more likely to engage in light physical activity (p < 0.01, p < 0.01) than the control group. Regarding vigorous physical activity during break, the intervention group was less likely to engage in vigorous physical activity (p = 0.02). During the entire school day, the intervention group was more likely to engage in moderate physical activity (p = 0.03) than the control group.
Conclusion: The availability of equipment for use during recess was associated with high levels of physical activity.

Outline:  Use of external coaches for school-based extracurricular sports activities has been promoted because of the lack of teachers who can coach expertly and the large burden placed on teachers when coaching and managing such activities. However, it has been reported that securing external coaches through human resources is difficult. To promote the use of external coaches, previous studies have suggested some possible strategies: 1) clarifying the role and status of external coaches, and promoting cooperative coaching with external coaches and teachers; 2) interactive collection and provision of information about external coaches and schools, and improving recognition of the mediation system; 3) improving the way external coaches are recruited, and setting a suitable trial period; 4) moderating institutional limitations for coaching frequency and number of coaches; and 5) holding workshops for external coaches. However, these suggestions were made from only an individual viewpoint (i.e. that of teachers, external coaches, and potential external coaches), and did not consider organizational perspectives. In Japan, there are some organizations that help recruitment of external coaches for school-based extracurricular sports activities. It is necessary to consider the opinions of these organizations to develop more realistic and concrete promotion strategies. Therefore, the present study explored in detail the trials, problems, challenges, and strategies of organizations in order to promote the recruitment of external coaches for school-based extracurricular sports activities. Face to face semi-structured interviews were conducted involving 15 individuals in 11 organizations (2 national and 4 prefectural organizations, 3 schools, 1 university, and 1 company) supporting the recruitment of external coaches for school-based extracurricular sports activities. The interviews contained questions asking details of the recruitment system, problems, challenges and management strategies. All interviews were audio-recorded with agreement from the participants. The transcript data were integrated into 7 trials and their details, problems, challenges, and strategies were described. The results indicated that in order to promote the engagement of external coaches, a number of factors were important, including building human relationships between external coaches and teachers led by teachers that could share information, interactive collection and provision of information through mediator and cooperation with other organizations, collecting information about external coaches and interviewing them before formal acceptance, keeping the coaching non-compensatory, holding workshops and creating feedback to promote communication and learning of external coaches, and considering the continuity of the trial. Knowledge of the various problems, challenges, and strategies from an organizational perspective would contribute to improvement of recruitment strategy. The results of the present study could also provide information that is beneficial for other organizations wishing to conduct similar trials.

Outline: School-based extracurricular sports activities are beneficial for positive youth development. However, there is a shortage of appropriate in-school coaches, and therefore recruitment of external coaches has been considered as one solution to this. A previous study has reported four model strategies of organizational promotion to recruit external coaches. These four models included "compensational support", "staff introduction", "delivery of collegiate students", and "cooperation with company". In order to promote the further development and popularization of these organizational trials, user-side evaluation is necessary. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to clarify the strengths and problems related to these four organizational promotion strategy models when recruiting external coaches for school-based extracurricular sports activities from the viewpoint of teachers. The participants were 12 teachers who worked in public junior high or high schools. All of them had experience of coaching school-based extracurricular sports activities. Face-to-face semi-structured interviews were conducted with the individual participants, and all interview data were transcribed. Then, similar meaning units were grouped into themes with respect to the four models, strengths and problems. As a result, many specific themes for each model emerged. For instance, with regard to "compensational support", monetary support was regarded as a strength, although the early application period was a problem. With regard to "staff introduction", adequacy for beginners was a strength, but lack of mediation organization was a problem. With regard to "delivery of collegiate students", regular coaching was seen as a strength, but worry over not choosing a delivered external coach was a problem. With regard to "cooperation with company", high coaching skill was a strength, but an expensive coaching fee was a problem. Additionally, comprehensive opinions about all the models were reported, such as lack of information about the system and the need for educational coaching. These similarities and differences in the results indicated the importance of mediation system design considering the regionality and situation of the school-based extracurricular sports activity. Effective publicity and re-examination of financial manager is also needed. In addition, mediation organization and teachers should arrange previous meetings with external coaches to understand their human qualities and educational attitude. Furthermore, it would be valuable to develop the quality of external coaches through previous training or workshops. Finally, changes in the application period for each mediation system are suggested.

Outline:    School-based extracurricular sports activity (SBECSA) is a beneficial activity for positive youth development. However, there are some problems regarding the management of SBECSA, such as the lack of SBECSA teachers who can coach expertly and the great burden for SBECSA teachers. Although the number of external coaches has not been sufficient, recruiting external coaches into SBECSA has been focused on to help resolve these issues. For further effective recruitment of external coaches, approaching the community residents who have motivation to be external coaches is important. Nevertheless, the sociodemographics associated with the motivation still have not been explored. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to clarify the sociodemographics of community residents who have motivation to become involved in SBECSA as external coaches (potential external coaches) . An Internet-based cross-sectional survey was conducted by a social survey company with 19506 registrants aged 20-69 years. Stratified random sampling was continued till 100 potential external coaches were collected for both genders and every age group. Coaching motivation as an external coach and six sociodemographics (gender, age, occupational status, marital status, teaching credential, and coaching credential) were obtained. As a statistical analysis, logistic regression analysis was performed. Overall, 19239 participants were included in the analysis and 5.9% of them had coaching motivation. Potential external coaches were significantly less likely to be females (OR = 0.42) , people in their 30s (OR = 0.63) , 40s (OR = 0.40) , 50s (OR = 0.30) , 60s (OR = 0.24) than males and people in their 20s. In addition, workers (OR = 1.49) , students (OR = 1.52) , married people (OR = 1.32) , those who have teaching credentials (OR = 1.60) and coaching credentials (OR = 8.13) were more likely to be external coaches. In conclusion, the present study clarified the sociodemographics of potential external coaches. It is suggested in recruiting external coaches into SBECSA, providing promotion strategies which take these sociodemographic factors into account would be effective.

Outline:Sedentary behavior, defined as participation in activities such as sitting and reclining during waking hours that do not increase energy expenditure substantially, has been gaining increased focus in physical activity research. In the last decade, sedentary behavior has emerged as a new risk factor for physical and mental health, independent of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity. Especially, older adults spend most of their waking time in sedentary activities. Despite this high exposure, a broader base of evidence on sedentary behavior research in older adults has not yet been well reviewed. To inform future directions on sedentary behavior research among older adults, the present study provides the overview of the evidence from recently-published studies. This review includes evidence on the prevalence of objectively-measured and self-reported sedentary behaviors; the relationships with sedentary behavior (too much sitting) with multiple health outcomes; the effectiveness of interventions to reduce sedentary time and an overview of public health recommendations on reducing and breaking up sedentary time. Additional studies with high methodological quality are still needed to develop informed guidelines for addressing sedentary behavior in older adults.

Outline:Objective: The present study examined the prevalence and correlates of awareness about the role physical activity plays in colon cancer prevention among Japanese adults.Methods: Data were analyzed for 1,964 Japanese adults (aged 44.7 years) who responded to an internet-based cross-sectional survey. The survey was used to assess awareness of the role of physical activity in colon cancer prevention, knowledge of colon cancer, exposure to information about physical activity and cancer, a self-reported physical activity and sociodemographic variables (gender, age, marital status, education level, employment status, household income, and colon cancer history). A multivariate logistic regression analysis was used.Results: Overall, 47.5% of respondents were aware of the preventive role of physical activity on colon cancer. Respondents aged 60-69 (AOR, 95%CI: 0.59, 0.45-0.79) were significantly less likely to be aware than respondents aged 20-29 years, while those with college graduates or higher (1.32, 1.05-1.66) were more likely to be aware than those who had graduate junior high or high school. Moreover, exposure to information about cancer and physical activity (2.07, 1.71-2.51), and meeting physical activity recommendations (1.43, 1.12-1.84) were positively associated with the awareness.Conclusions: Awareness of the role of physical activity in colon cancer prevention was not sufficient. The finding suggests that strategies are needed for promoting awareness of the effect of physical activity in colon cancer prevention among Japanese adults, especially in consideration of age and education level.

Outline::Differences in recess physical activity (PA) according to perceived school environment among elementary school children were examined. Participants were 103 children from two schools in Japan. PA was measured using accelerometry for seven consecutive days. Time spent in sedentary or PA (light, moderate, or vigorous) during their morning recess (25 min) and lunch recess (15 min) was determined. The School Physical Activity Environment Scale (three factors: equipment, facility, and safety) was used to investigate perceived school environment. Environmental factor scores were assigned to low or high groups for each factor by median. An analysis of covariance, with grade as the covariate, was conducted separately by gender to examine differences in PA between two groups. During lunch recess, boys in the high-equipment group spent significantly more time in moderate PA (high: 1.5; low: 0.8 min) whereas girls in this group spent less time in light PA (9.3, 11.0). Boys in the high-facility group spent significantly less time in sedentary (2.3, 3.9) and more time in vigorous PA (2.4, 1.4) during lunch recess, and girls spent more time in moderate (2.1, 1.2) and vigorous PA (1.9, 1.3) during morning recess. Differences were observed in recess PA according to school environment perceptions. The present study may be useful for further intervention studies for the promotion of PA during recess.

Outline:Background: In contemporary society, prolonged sitting has become pervasive in our lives across many settings, including transportation, the workplace, and the home. There is a rapidly accumulating evidence that large volumes of daily sedentary time (typically in the contexts of television viewing, computer use, workplace sitting, and time spent in automobiles) are adversely associated with cardio-metabolic risk biomarkers, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, and premature mortality. Importantly, these detrimental associations remain even after accounting for time spent in physical activity. To inform future directions on sedentary behavior research among adults, the present paper reviews the evidence from recently-published studies, applying the behavioral epidemiology framework.Contents: This review includes evidence on the relationships with sedentary behavior (too much sitting) with health risk indicators; self-report and device-based measurement of sedentary behaviors; the prevalence and trends for key sedentary behaviors; an ecological model and the environmental correlates of sedentary behavior; the effectiveness of interventions to reduce sedentary time; and, an overview of public health recommendations on reducing and breaking up sedentary time.Conclusions: Future directions for sedentary behavior research are as follows: population-based prospective studies using device-based measures to better understand the impact of sedentary time on health outcomes, prospective studies to clarify the multiple levels of determinants of prolonged sitting time in different life settings, further intervention trials to reduce and break up sedentary behaviors in domestic, workplace, and transportation environments, translational research (such as mass media campaigns) to spread messages about reducing sitting time in daily life, and experimental studies to determine underlying mechanisms and dose-response relationships.

Outline:Engaging in physical activity was proved to have positive effects on physical and mental health in children. Built environment is an important correlate of physical activity participation. School recess provides a daily opportunity for children to be active during school day. Therefore, the purpose of the present article was to review literatures regarding 1) physical activity during school recess, 2) the relationship between recess physical activity and school physical environment, 3) intervention for physical activity promotion during recess by changing school physical environment, and to explore trends of current researches and assignments of future research. A review was conducted and included studies published to May 31, 2011. Twenty-two studies were selected in 1) and showed boys often engaged in more physical activity than girls, but the results on differences in physical activity between ages were inconsistent. Six studies were selected in 2) and indicated recess physical activity was associated with playground environments such as equipments, marking, and surface situate. School environment intervention was observed to be a potential method for promoting physical activity in children by 8 studies in 3). Playground environment with marking, additional play equipments, and designated activity zones increased physical activity during recess. Most researches regarding recess physical activity was conducted in U.S., Australia, and Western countries, and confirmed the effectiveness of recess to promote physical activity. However, few studies on this topic were conducted in Japan. Further researches are needed to draw a conclusion about the possibility of recess to promote physical activity among Japanese children.

Outline:Objective: Environmental factors are related to physical activity among youth on a long-term. The purpose of the present study was to develop a neighborhood physical activity environment scale and to examine the relationship between neighborhood physical activity environment and out-side of school physical activity and school commuting among Japanese elementary students.Methods: Internet-based survey was administered to 1,074 Japanese guardians aged 20-59 years who had elementary school child. Sociodemographic attributes (gender and age of guardians, gender, age, hight and weight of children), neighborhood physical activity environment scale including 16 items and time of physical activity during out-side of school for leisure and walking to school commuting were assessed by the self-administered questionnaire.Results: Exploratory factor analyses identified 4 factors labeled "safety" with 5 items, "pleasing aesthetic" with 4 items, "crime safety" with 2 items and "uncomfortable aesthetic" with 2 items. Confirmatory factor analyses to examine the construct validity revealed acceptable fit indices (GFI = 0.969, AGFI = 0.949, RMSEA = 0.052, AIC = 288.360). The reliability of the subscale was found good internal consistency (r = 0.67-0.79) and moderately high inter-rater reliability (r = 0.55-0.68). Those who perceived good "safety", "pleasing aesthetic" and "uncomfortable aesthetic" environments were significantly more likely to spent of physical activity during out-side of school for leisure and school commuting.Conclusion: The valid and reliable neighborhood physical activity environment scale was developed and it is applicable to the assessment of neighborhood environmental perceptions relevant to physical activity in Japanese elementary school children.

Outline:Background Psychological, social, and environmental factors are important determinants for physical activity promotion. There are numerous studies of the direct effects of these factors on physical activity. However, only a few studies have been examined the direct and mediated effects of these factors on physical activity.Purpose The purpose of the present study was to examine the direct and indirect influences of psychological, social, and environmental factors on physical activity among Japanese adults.Methods An internet-based cross-sectional survey was conducted to 2,000 Japanese adults aged 20-79 years. Seven sociodemographic attributes (e. g., gender, age, and marital status), self-efficacy, pros and cons, social support for exercise and environmental variables (home fitness equipment, access to facilities, neighborhood safety, aesthetics, seeing others exercising) were assessed by a self-administered questionnaire. The physical activity was estimated from the Japanese version of the short form of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire. Data were analyzed using structural equation modeling by gender.Results The respondents' mean (SD) age was 43.6(13.0). Environmental factors had indirect effects on physical activity through self-efficacy, social support and pros and cons. On both gender, the strongest indirect effects was the path of environmental factors on physical activity through pros to self-efficacy. The total effects of environmental factors on physical activity were 0.06 of males and 0.04 of females.Conclusion The results indicate that environmental factors had indirect effects on physical activity through psychological and social factors among Japanese adults. These results could contribute to the development of physical activity promotion strategies in Japan.

Outline:Objective: The purpose of this study was to clarify the process of shaping partnerships for developing and implementing a system of walking groups as a health promotion effort.Methods: We conducted a semi-structured interview with two public health nurses who were responsible for the IC-Walk program implemented by the Department of Health Promotion in M City and also performed document analysis regarding the program. Qualitative analysis was used to capture perspectives related to partnership formation processes by extracting codes, subcategories, and categories from interview transcripts and the documents.Results: Eighteen identified codes for shaping partnerships were grouped into nine subcategories ("mayors," "parties," "conferences," "groups," budget from sections beyond health," "subsidy," "private sector," "intersectoral collaboration within the government," and "intersectoral collaboration without the government"). Four categories were then abstracted: "political decision," "programs," "organization," and "budget". Finally, a structured model showed the relationships among the categories, taking into consideration the process of shaping partnerships.Conclusions: This study presented a structured model of the process of shaping partnerships for a municipal health promotion program. The model indicated that administrators' awareness and behavior contributed to the shaping of partnerships.

Outline:    The present case study evaluated an environment-focused project for promoting walking, which included the development of walking courses (using public spaces, parks, roads) with stations for smart cards in the community and an interfaced internet-based self-monitoring system. The project was started in 2008 in Misato City of Saitama Prefecture. In this project, individuals can participate by paying a registration fee (500 yen) and obtaining their own cards. If registrants walk the course, holding their cards over a scanner at 3-4 stations, the smart card records their data (e.g. distance and time spent in walking) from one to the other station and transfers these to a self-monitoring system. As a result, registrants could check their data online. From June 2008 to November 2009, a total of 631 individuals (62% female) who obtained the information from newspaper, magazines, website, or some local events, registered for this project. From walking data collected automatically in the database through the self-monitoring system, it was found that 445 registrants (63% female) used this system at least once, and most of the registrants were 40 years old or more. This suggests that the project in this study might have been effective in promoting walking only among older people. Also, most of the registrants lived around the courses. In particular, the courses in the area surrounded by beautiful nature and residential areas were often used. To expand this idea to other age groups, new attempts, including a point supplying system based on the distance of walking are under development.

Outline:Objective:The present study examined physical activity(PA)levels and differences in PA by gender and grades during school recess periods. Method:PA levels of two hundred and thirty children(55% boys, 42%younger)from two elementary schools in Japan were measured with accelerometry for seven consecutive days. Time spent in sedentary, light PA, moderate PA, vigorous PA during break(25 minutes)and lunch recess(15 minutes), and total recess(40 minutes)was determined. Two-way analysis of variance was used to examine differences in PA variables by gender and grades. Results:Data of one hundred and eighty four children(52% boys, 56% younger)was available. Time spent in sedentary, light PA, moderate PA, and vigorous PA was 8.5±4.9, 12.9±3.8, 1.6±1.2, and 2.9±2.8 minutes during break, and 3.5±2.5, 9.5±2.2, 1.4±0.9, and 1.6±1.4 minutes during lunch recess, respectively. There were no significant interactions between gender and grades. Significant main effects of PA variables were found for gender and grades. Boys had fewer sedentary time(p=0.017)and higher vigorous PA time(p<0.001)than girls during total recess. Younger engaged in more sedentary(p=0.045)and less light(p=0.023)and moderate PA(p=0.006)than older at break. On the other hand, at lunch recess, younger had significantly longer light(p=0.015)and vigorous PA(p<0.001)and shorter sedentary time(p<0.001)than older. Conclusion:Overall, boys were less sedentary and engaged in PA at higher intensity levels than girls during school recess. Different pattern in PA was shown between break and lunch recess by grades.

Outline::The authors examined the relationship between strength-training behavior and perceived environment in older Japanese adults. An Internet-based survey was conducted of 293 adults age 68.2 ± 2.8 yr. The dependent variable was regular strength-training behavior. The IPAQ environment module, access to facilities for strength training, and home equipment for strength training were environmental factors. Logistic-regression analysis was employed. After demographic variables (gender, age, educational background, household income, body-mass index, self-rated health status, smoking habit, and residential area) were adjusted for, home equipment for strength training (OR = 2.14, 95% CI = 1.50-3.06), access to facilities for strength training (OR = 2.53, 95% CI = 1.32-4.85), and observing active people (OR = 2.20, 95% CI = 1.06-4.58) were positively correlated with regular strength-training behavior. In conclusion, environmental factors associated with strength-training behavior were access to facilities for strength training, having home equipment for strength training, and observing active people.

Outline:OBJECTIVES:With the rapid developing an internet society, ehealth literacy, defined as the ability to seek, find, understand, and appraise and apply the knowledge gained to addressing or solving a health problem, becomes important to promote and aid health care at the individual level. However, the eHealth Literacy Scale (eHEALS) was only a scale developed to assess the ehealth literacy. Thus, the present study was conducted to evaluated the validity and reliability of a Japanese version of the eHEALS (J-eHEALS), and examine the association of ehealth literacy with demographic attributes and characteristics on health information searching among Japanese adults.;METHODS:Data were analyzed for 3,000 Japanese adults (males: 50.0%,mean age: 39.6 + 10.9 years) who responded to an Internet-based cross-sectional survey. The J-eHEALS, 6 demographic attributes, resources for obtaining health information (health resources), and contents of health information obtained from internet (ehealth contents) were obtained with a questionnaire. Confirmatory factor analysis and correlation with the communicative and critical health literacy scale were utilized to assess construct validity and criterion validity. Cronbach alpha and correlation coefficients were computed for internal consistency and test-retest reliability. Also, differences in J-eHEALS scores with each demographic attribute were examined with ANOVA and the independent t-test. Finally, chi-square tests were used to determine differences in the proportions of ehealth literacy groups (high or low) classified with a median split within health resources and ehealth contents.;RESULTS:Principal components analysis produced a single factor solution and confirmatory factor analysis for the 8-items model demonstrated high indices (GFI = .988, CFI = .993, RMSEA= .056). A significant positive correlation was found between the J-eHEALS and communicative and critical health literacy scores. Cronbach alpha was 0.93 (P < .01), and test-retest reliability was r = 0.63 (P < .01). The J-eHEALS scores were significantly higher in women, the 40-and 50-year age group, those with high income, and individuals with a high frequency of internet searching. Furthermore, the high ehealth literacy group used many health resources and obtained a greater variety of ehealth contents as compared with the low literacy group. The most frequent resource was the internet in the high group, and television/radio in the low group. However, these results could be subject to bias because of the non-representative nature of the Internet population.;CONCLUSION:The results indicate the J-eHEALS to be a highly validated and reliable scale. The present study suggests that enhancement of ehealth literacy will be important to utilize the increasing amount of health information on the internet effectively and appropriately.

Outline:Background: Understanding the long-term effects of environment on health behavior is important for the promotion of population-based physical activity.Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between perceived environment and active commuting among Japanese adults.Methods: Internet-based cross-sectional survey were conducted to 3,000 Japanese adults aged 30-59 years. Seven sociodemographic attributes (gender, age, marital status, employment status, living status, educational attainment and household income), type of commute and International Physical Activity Questionnaire Environment Module were assessed by self-administered questionnaire.Results: Of all respondents to the survey, 2,032 (mean age: 43.8±9.2, male: 62.5%) were employed. Those who use an active commute were 1,401 (68.9%). In both genders, high residential density (male: OR=2.28, female: OR=3.08), good access to shops (OR=2.03, 3.06), public transportation (OR=1.65, 3.78), recreational facilities (OR=1.31, 1.44), presence of sidewalks (OR=1.42, 1.77), crossroads (OR=1.87, 1.76), having a destination (OR=1.84, 2.34), and not having household vehicles (OR=15.13, 41.24) were associated with an active commute. The results indicated some gender differences. Among male, the presence of a bicycle lane and good aesthetics was positively associated with the active commute, while traffic safety was negatively associated. On the other hand, crime safety was associated with the active commute in female.Conclusion: The results indicate that perceived environment was associated with the active commute among Japanese adults.

Outline:    Built environment is an important correlate of physical activity participation. Understanding the long-term effects of environment on health behavior is necessary for the promotion of population-based physical activity. However, most studies assessing the relationships between physical activity and environment have been conducted in the United States and Australia. The present study reviews Japanese researches on built environment and physical activity, and discusses the applicability of the built environment on promoting physical activity among Japanese adults. A review was conducted by searching the PubMed and Ichushi electronic database from inception to Sept 24, 2009. Eligible articles were identified as follows : 2 studies that developed the environment scale ; 10 studies that assessed the relationships with physical activity and built environment. There have been only a limited number of studies which were conducted with Japanese adults, thus more researches are needed to draw conclusions about the built environment associated with physical activity.

学校の校庭の芝生化が子どもの身体活動に与える影響

2011Collaborator:岡 浩一朗

Research Results Outline:学校の休み時間は、すべての子どもに対して日常的に身体活動を推進できる重要な場面であり、その環境整備が急務である。文部科学省および日本サッカー協会が推進学校の休み時間は、すべての子どもに対して日常的に身体活動を推進できる重要な場面であり、その環境整備が急務である。文部科学省および日本サッカー協会が推進している校庭の芝生化は、休み時間における児童の身体活動を推進するための学校環境整備の一環になり得る...学校の休み時間は、すべての子どもに対して日常的に身体活動を推進できる重要な場面であり、その環境整備が急務である。文部科学省および日本サッカー協会が推進している校庭の芝生化は、休み時間における児童の身体活動を推進するための学校環境整備の一環になり得ると考えられる。しかし、校庭の芝生化が休み時間における児童の身体活動量に及ぼす影響について検討した研究はこれまでに行われていない。そこで、本研究課題では、校庭の芝生化が学校の休み時間における児童の身体活動に及ぼす影響を明らかにすることを目的とした。対象者は埼玉県の1小学校に在籍する3‐6年生の児童86名(男子50名、女子36名)とした。校庭の芝生化前(7月下旬)および芝生化後(10月上旬)に、加速度センサー付歩数計(スズケン社製ライフコーダ)7日間連続装着によって、中休み(25分)および昼休み(15分)における座位活動および低強度、中等度、高強度身体活動の実施時間を測定した。芝生化による各身体活動強度の実施時間の変化について、学年を共変量とした反復測定分散分析を用いて性別に検討した。有効データが3日未満の者を除き、中休み55名、昼休み56名を分析対象者とした。中休みにおいて、女子の中等度身体活動が有意に増加した(前1.3±0.7、後1.6±0.7、p=0.04)。一方で昼休みにおいては、男女ともに座位活動が有意に増加し(男子:前3.7±2.7、後6.8±3.1;p<0.01、女子:前3.9±2.3、後7.5±2.4;p=0.02)、低強度身体活動は有意に減少した(男子:前9.0±2.7、後5.6±2.1;p=0.01、女子:前9.5±2.4、後6.6±1.9;p=0.01)。芝生化により、身体動作の種類が多様になったことや、校内にいた女子が校庭に出て活動するようになったことが、中休みにおける女子の中等度身体活動の増加をもたらした要因として考えられる。一方で昼休みにおいては、身体活動が減少した。芝生化によって制限された遊びがあること、「座る」、「寝転ぶ」といった動作が増加したことが、低強度身体活動を座位活動に移行させた可能性がある。校庭の芝生化により児童の身体活動を大きく推進するためには、教員の声掛けや遊具の提供といった取り組みを併せて行う工夫が求められる。また、身体活動の内容がどのように変化して身体活動量に変化を及ぼしたのか、行動観察などの手法を用いて明らかにしていくことが、今後の課題とされる。校庭の芝生化によって、昼休みにおいては男女ともに身体活動量は減少したものの、中休みにおける女子の中等度身体活動の増加が確認された。

学校の朝の休み時間における子どもの身体活動を推進するための支援方法の提案

Research Results Outline:本研究の目的は、始業前の時間帯における運動介入が、始業前の児童の身体活動に与える影響について検討することとした。対象者は、東京都の公立小学校4校に在籍本研究の目的は、始業前の時間帯における運動介入が、始業前の児童の身体活動に与える影響について検討することとした。対象者は、東京都の公立小学校4校に在籍する5年生310名(男子177名)のうち、保護者より調査参加の同意が得られデータに欠損のない152...本研究の目的は、始業前の時間帯における運動介入が、始業前の児童の身体活動に与える影響について検討することとした。対象者は、東京都の公立小学校4校に在籍する5年生310名(男子177名)のうち、保護者より調査参加の同意が得られデータに欠損のない152名とした。本研究は始業前の時間帯における運動介入(2013年5~7月)と、介入前(T1)、介入後(T2)の2時点に測定を行った。調査参加への同意を得た研究参加校4校を介入校2校と対照校2校に振り分けた。介入校2校に対して、各校の始業前の時間帯に大学生指導者2名による運動遊びの介入を実施した。介入時間は、介入の内容や時間によって児童の身体活動推進の効果に異なる影響を与えることから(Ickes et al., 2012)、15分間の介入を行う学校と30分の介入を行う学校の2群に分けた。始業前の時間帯において、男子については30分の運動介入が、女子については15分の運動介入が身体活動推進のうえで効果的であることが明らかとなった。

児童の座位行動が学力および体力に与える影響の解明

2017

Research Results Outline:子どもの長時間の座位行動と学力・体力との関連を明らかにすることを目的とした。小学校3-6年生を対象とし、質問紙への回答を求めた。体力・学力のデータは学子どもの長時間の座位行動と学力・体力との関連を明らかにすることを目的とした。小学校3-6年生を対象とし、質問紙への回答を求めた。体力・学力のデータは学校より得た。調査内容は、平日及び休日の場面別座位時間 (読書/音楽鑑賞、テレビ視聴、テレビ/ビデオ...子どもの長時間の座位行動と学力・体力との関連を明らかにすることを目的とした。小学校3-6年生を対象とし、質問紙への回答を求めた。体力・学力のデータは学校より得た。調査内容は、平日及び休日の場面別座位時間 (読書/音楽鑑賞、テレビ視聴、テレビ/ビデオゲーム利用、インターネット利用、学業、夜間の携帯電話利用、車移動)、学校の学業成績、新体力テスト、社会人口学的要因(性、学年、身長、体重)、中等度以上身体活動とした。座位行動とアウトカムとの関連について、社会人口統計学的要因及び身体活動を調整変数とした相関係数を算出した。本研究の結果より、学業以外の座位行動の長さは体力及び学業成績の悪さとの有意な相関が認められた。

どのような公園が子どもの身体活動を増進させ、座位行動を減少させるのか?

2018Collaborator:岡浩一朗, 柴田愛

Research Results Outline:本研究の目的は、どのような条件(利便性や特徴)を持つ公園が子どもの主観的・客観的に測定した身体活動を増加させ、座位行動を減少させるのかを明らかにするこ本研究の目的は、どのような条件(利便性や特徴)を持つ公園が子どもの主観的・客観的に測定した身体活動を増加させ、座位行動を減少させるのかを明らかにすることとした。対象者は、東京都の2つの市の住民基本台帳より無作為に抽出した小学1年~6年生の男女2,4...本研究の目的は、どのような条件(利便性や特徴)を持つ公園が子どもの主観的・客観的に測定した身体活動を増加させ、座位行動を減少させるのかを明らかにすることとした。対象者は、東京都の2つの市の住民基本台帳より無作為に抽出した小学1年~6年生の男女2,400名およびその保護者とした。無作為抽出の方法は、性および学年で重み付けし、1世帯から1名のみを抽出した。この2,400名に対し調査依頼を行い、協力に同意が得られた620名に調査一式を送付した。調査に回答のない対象者については、2週間後に督促を行った。調査は郵送法により行い、質問紙調査および加速度計7日間連続装着による身体活動・座位行動の評価および関連要因を調査した。質問紙調査は、身体活動および座位行動と公園に関する利便性や特徴、その他の関連要因として、自宅近隣や学校内などの環境的要因や心理的要因、社会的要因を調査した。結果として、525名の者が調査・測定を完遂した。本調査により取得したデータより、身体活動・座位行動それぞれに公園の利便性および特徴が関連していることが示された。今後は公園に着目した児童の身体活動推進のための方策を構築することが望まれる。

児童の座位行動に影響を与える要因およびその健康影響を解明するための縦断的研究
