★ Ideal Height of a Man “176-180cm 37.4%”

High height, high salary, and high education, also known as the “three highs” has been regarded as the ultimate combination in Japanese society. However, many women now say that average is the best, so let’s see if this new way of thinking correlates with height. We asked 736 people just what they think.

Q. What’s your ideal height for a man? (Choose one)

1st  176-180cm (5’77” to 5’9″) 37.4%

2nd  171-175cm (5’6″ to 5’74”) 29.4%

3rd 181-185cm (5’94” to 6′) 17.9%

4th 166-170cm (5’44” to 5’57”) 7.3%

5th 186-190cm (6’1″ to 6’2″) 2.7%

■ 176-180cm

・”I’m lacking in height, but I think 180cm and higher look the best” (34, male / IT)

・”My ideal is to have to look up to him when he’s talking” (30, female / programmer)

・”A little on the tall side, but I think it doesn’t stand out too much, so it’s just right” (29, female / finance)

■ Bonus: do men look up to taller men?

・186-190cm “I need at least this much for a fair fight with those around the world” (34, male / education)

・190-195cm “Taller men overseas are around this area” (50, male / IT)

・Over 201cm “I’ve read anecdotes that Confucious was 209cm tall” (37, male / construction)

The most popular opinion was a man that approached 180cm. It seems that women want to be able to look up to men a little, and for men it’s the preferred height to dress fashionably. Men are getting taller as the years pass, so it’s possible that the ideal height may keep growing.

Normal shops only sell up to 2L (XL).

180cm is 3L, 185cm is 4L. Gain some weight and you’re 5L.

The average height in Japan is 171cm or something, right?That means in reality, around half are under 170cm
