Based on a joint research agreement concluded by the Japan Geriatric Evaluation and Research Organization (JAGES Organization) and Yokohama City on September 1, 2016, participation in the Yokohama Walking Point Project will affect motor functions and depression. As a result of verifying the impact, it became clear that the Yokohama Walking Point Business was effective in increasing the walking time of participating elderly people, preventing a decline in motor function, and suppressing depression. This is the first study to examine the effects of the Yokohama Walking Point Business, including the background factors of the participating groups and non-participating groups.
