Hello “Superelderly”


Big challenges lie ahead for Japan as it enters a new phase with the rise of the superelderly – those aged 75 years and above. In a recent report, Keio University's Kobayashi said Japan will soon reach a stage where the burden of supporting the elderly will require "innovations to tackle social problems in fields such as finance, fiscal policy and working style." Japan government is trying to make the best of the situation by making Japan a global leader in issues related to aging, while maintaining economic growth. But the clock is ticking – faster.
