I published a review article “Undokai and sports events in the Japanese school system” in the special issue of Pediatrics International, “School Health Promotion in Japan and its Contribution to Asia and Africa.”
This article covers sports events in Japanese schools, including Undokai. Undokai has a unique style developed during the time of modernization in Japan. The history and role of sports events were described in this article. Furthermore, the importance of sports events was discussed not only in the context of Japan but also worldwide.
