Yoon,
That is the Self-Defense Force Physical Education School. The narrator says that a lot of the Olympic hopefuls train there, so they aren't all military. I guess the equivalent of the OTC for weightlifting.

You know, my impression is that weightlifting is more well-known here. The local city gym I go to has three platforms and all the equipment. I don't know how many YMCAs in the states would be equipped like that. Also, at least two high schools in the area have teams. There is also a citizens team, the Hokkaido Weightlifting Association. Many universities also have teams. And if I start talking about weightlifting, people generally understand what I mean and don't just think "Oh, curls!"
