The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to examine the relationship between happiness, satisfaction, and the psychological effects of consuming “shikohin” at social events on psychological health. Five hundred and thirty-two participants (270 men, 262 women; mean age=44.91 years, SD=13.81 years) from a community sample in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, and Chiba completed a set of questionnaires and the data were analyzed. The results of partial correlation analyses showed that when people experienced positive and negative social life events, the psychological effects of consuming “shikohin” showed a weak but positive correlation with happiness and satisfaction.
