The summer tradition “Oshibori Train” has been updated for a limited time! Kabaya Foods and Yamaman Yukarigaoka Line jointly implement heat countermeasures
*~ Assisting with appropriate salt replenishment within the
Yukarigaoka line from July 16th (Tuesday) to July 20th (Saturday) ~* Kabaya Foods Co., Ltd. (Head office: Kita-ku, Okayama City,
Representative Director and President: Anai
From Tuesday, July 16, 2024 to Saturday, July 20, 2024, Yamaman Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Tetsuo Shimada) will Mineral water and “salt charge tablets” will be distributed free of charge on board the trains of the Yamaman Yukarigaoka Line and near the ticket gates of Yukarigaoka Station. At Kabaya Foods, we are conducting awareness-raising activities regarding “appropriate salt supplementation” as a way to properly manage your health during the summer, and this incident is one of those activities.

On the Yamaman Yukarigaoka Line, where trains do not have air conditioning facilities, during the hot season, we hand out towels and original paper fans near the ticket gates and inside the train at Yukarigaoka Station to help passengers stay as comfortable as possible inside the train. I am. This initiative has become established and is now popularly known as the “Oshibori Densha.” This joint initiative was made possible because of our desire to provide hospitality to passengers and raise awareness of summer health management.

On hot days, we sweat a lot while commuting to school or work. When you lose a large amount of water from your body through sweat etc., even if you continue to replenish only water without replacing salt, your body will not have enough sodium to keep you hydrated, so your body will not be able to absorb the water you replenish. I can’t keep it and it flows out. Therefore, due to a lack of salt, the amount of water in the body does not normalize despite replenishing hydration, causing various physical problems. In this way, salt plays an important role in maintaining the amount of water in the body, so in order to avoid temporary “salt loss”, it is necessary to not only replenish water but also to provide adequate salt replenishment.

In order for you to experience this “appropriate salt
supplementation,” we will be distributing mineral water and “salt charge tablets” on board the Yamaman Yukarigaoka Line trains and near the ticket gates of Yukarigaoka Station. We will strive to popularize it.

* -Implementation summary-*
Mineral water and salt charge tablets (sample products) will be distributed free of charge from July 16, 2024 (Tuesday) to July 20, 2024 (Saturday).

* ■ About Yamaman Yukarigaoka Line *

The Yamaman Yukarigaoka Line opened in November 1982, just as urban development in Yukarigaoka progressed. Ivory white with green stripes that represent nature – the new transportation system “Yamaman Yukarigaoka Line,” affectionately known as “Koara,” is the symbol of Yukarigaoka, where there are no worries about noise, vibration, or exhaust gas.

The Koara train goes around the town’s six stations in 14 minutes, making it a convenient means of transportation for local residents. Each station is conveniently located within a 10-minute walk from every residence in town. Another hot topic is that from Saturday, June 15, 2024, you will be able to board the train using facial recognition or a QR ticket.

* -Reference information-*
* Moisture + salt are the keys to combating the heat *
On July 7, 2024, Shizuoka reached the 40 degree range for the first time in the country this year, and 10 locations across the country recorded the highest temperature ever recorded, and the severe heat has continued since early July*.
I think many people are trying to stay hydrated during this intense heat, but what they often overlook is “salt supplementation.” If salt supplementation is not done correctly, various risks will occur. In the first place, why is it important not only to replenish water but also to replenish salt?
*Reference: From the Japan Meteorological Agency website daily maximum temperature list
* Be careful of “temporary salt loss”. What you need to understand is the role of “salt” *
* The amount of water in your body is determined by the total amount of sodium in your body. *
* In other words, when the amount of sodium in the body decreases, the body cannot retain water, *
* Even if you replenish your fluids, it will simply pass through and become urine. *
In other words, in order to store normal water in the body, it is necessary to avoid temporary “salt loss.”
When you lose a large amount of water from your body through sweat etc., even if you continue to replenish only water without replacing salt, your body will not have enough sodium to keep you hydrated, so your body will not be able to absorb the water you replenish. I can’t keep it and it flows out. Therefore, due to a lack of salt, the amount of water in the body does not normalize despite replenishing hydration, causing various physical problems. In this way, salt plays an important role in maintaining the amount of water in the body, so in order to avoid temporary “salt loss”, it is necessary to not only replenish water but also to provide adequate salt replenishment. * Lack of water in the body due to salt loss *
When you sweat, your body loses a lot of water and salt. In this temporary state of “salt loss,” if you only replenish water and neglect to replenish salt, the body fluid concentration will normalize before returning to the original body fluid volume. Even if you continue to drink water in this state, your body will not have enough sodium to retain water, so you will not be able to retain the water you have taken in, and the amount of water in your body will not return to normal. In order to normalize the amount of water in your body, be sure to not only replenish your fluids but also replenish your salt intake.
* You’re sweating without even realizing it *
On hot days, there are many situations where you sweat indoors, even when cooking at home, in the kitchen, or while cleaning.
Therefore, it is necessary to frequently replenish water and salt regardless of the intensity of your activity. It is important to absorb enough water and salt to sweat, and this sweat evaporates on the skin surface and removes the heat of vaporization from the body in order to dissipate the body’s heat. What you need to be careful about is sweating on humid days or in situations where the wind is weak and the airflow doesn’t reach the skin surface. In this situation, it becomes difficult for sweat to evaporate and the heat of evaporation cannot be fully utilized, resulting in even more sweat, so be sure to drink more water and salt than usual.
