Editor’s Note: In addition to publishing descriptions of research programs and original research articles, we are pleased to include in the Japan Special Edition of JAPA a brief description of Japanese Aotake exercise, a unique combination of step aerobics and reflexology that has recently gained significant popularity in the older adult population throughout Japan. I am grateful to Kayoko Isono and Yoko Hayakawa for agreeing to share their expertise and insight with the JAPA readership.
