With the recent reduction in physical activity seen in Japanese children, reduced ability to exercise and increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity have become serious health concerns. Therefore, governmental agencies have promoted the improvement of the regional environment to encourage physical activity in children. This study shows, using a questionnaire survey and actual measurement of physical activity of children and parents, that the frequency at which children use community centers and gyms and participate in community activities affects frequency of exercise. The number of daily steps in children who did not receive sufficient daily exercise (<10,000 steps/day) increased by about 3,000 steps/day when they participated in community activities.
