And rarely eat butter and bread.. Except now aday' i think.. Many Japanese modern womab.. eating American junk Food.. Hot Dog.. Coca Cola.. Etc..

It’s primarily dietary reasons why most people, Japanese or otherwise are thin.

But, having lived in Japan for a long time, the “thin Japanese” body assumptions placed on women specifically is out of date. There are some who are thin, and some who are thick, curvy, or athletically built.

My thread cites ongoing examples of the later.

Have to agree with this. I’ve lived in Japan for years too, and the average lady in the street isn’t necessarily thin. It can’t be denied there are more skinny people on average compared to many other places, but Japan has more than it’s fair share of shapes, especially middle aged women.

They are not often skinny in the way that I would define skinny but if you mean just not overweight or obese, compared to other parts of the world the diet is filled with fiber like vegetables and probiotic foods like pickled vegetables, so they have both good stomachs and plenty of digestion aiding foods, although i think in today's japan highly processed instant food and junk food is rising in popularity due to lifestyle changes over the decades so I think Japanese girls might be getting a bit chunkier. Still not to the point of obesity

Here are some popular gravure idols that are known as being plump:
Chitose Yoshino, Ai Shinozaki, Hitomi Kitamura

Rei Ikeda, Airi Igawa and Yui Kudo are heavier amongst idols

On the skinny side I'd categorize girls like
Fuchigami Hikaru, Maity, Momoka Hayashida

Small limbs, flat belly, minimum body fat

Its cherry-picking from gravure idols yes but I think the common Japanese girl is probably just average, they are predisposed by genetics to carry weight around the middle which is a bit easier to hide when your job isn't taking pictures in a bikini
