never too old... play?
Playgrounds for the elderly - the latest Japanese invention. And a great one, too!
In a rapidly aging society like the Japanese one, initiatives like this one come in handy for old people. They are really good for helping them keep fit and prevent injuries - build more muscle, develop flexibility and generally keep in shape. And all these, just by playing! :)
Since 2004, Tokyo's Chiyoda Park houses several Nursing Care Prevention Parks in which one can find light exercise machines like the ones above.
A very sweet and healthy concept, don't you think?
