Public interest in health and well-being has been increasing, particularly reflecting the COVID-19 pandemic, which is a challenging global threat. Although evidence has been accumulating that suggests the critical role of socio-cultural environments on health and well-being, the increasing interest in these topics will result in greater awareness about the need for additional work in this research area. Against this backdrop, we invite empirical or review articles that address issues related to health and well-being based on a cultural approach, which are not limited to the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic. This special issue aims to showcase recent empirical and theoretical advances in research on culture, health, and well-being. We welcome not only studies conducted in multiple cultures, but also ones involving one culture. Studies are not limited to those conducted in Japan. We also welcome research that includes various forms of culture such as race, social class, religion, and subcultures and examines the influence of these factors on health and well-being.
