Do you know Japan is an old country ??
I meant that
Japan is an aging country.
The median age of Japan, which divides the population equally, is 46. This is the highest in the world!
The median age of the Philippines, another Asian country, is 23. You can tell how old Japan is.
We have a fewer marriages and kids year by year.
There are several ideas under discussion.
One of the ongoing polices is to take immigrants with special skills – 350,000 immigrants over five years.
Regardless, the population of Japan has been decreasing, and Japan’s aging seems non-stop.
It is a personal preference whether to get married and have kids so the government policies seem to have a limitation.
So what do we need to do?
Well, there is another way to look at it.
If you want to do business in Japan, the market of old people is huge. And they have more money than young people.
It is typical that two kids have 2 grandfathers and 2 grandmothers.
They want to spend money and time on grandchildren.
There is a big ‘want to take of grandparents’ market here in Japan.
And another way to look at this:
We have many tourists in Japan. I know one guy, who is around 70 years, is always helping tourists in trouble at the station. There is a market that ‘ I want to help ‘tourists.’
