Abstract: Surface area of 201 Japanese (both sexes) from infancy to old age selected statistically by sex, age and body shape were measured and the regional rates calculated and discussed. The results are as follows. 1. There was no difference between either side of the body for age or sex. 2. The rate of head, face and neck decreased while that of the lower extremities increased with aging. 3. After adolescence regional rates could be differenciated between the sexes. The rates of the thigh of the female were considerably higher than that of the male. 4. As for body shape, rate of the head, face and neck tended to lower toward obesity and rose toward slenderness. The rates of the trunk, upper and lower extremities revealed the opposite tendency to the former. 5. These results vary little as compared to other studies done on Japanese. However, compared to a German or an American revealed a higher rate for limbs. The rate was definetely lower for the Westerner.
