How Japan is tackling its plummeting population problem
Within a decade, scholars predict, one third of Japanese people will be 65 or older. By 2035, half will be single. By 2040, half of Japan’s municipalities could die out, with one in three houses abandoned. The current population of 127 million will dip below 100 million before 2050.
