Number of People Aged 100 and over in Japan Tops 90,000 for First Time
Join us as we listen to a story in simplified Japanese about centenarians in Japan. This year the number of people aged 100 and over exceeded 90,000 for the first time, marking a record high for the 52nd consecutive year. We also introduce various public and private services that support older adults. For example, since 2012, non-Japanese citizens aged 40 and over who have resided in Japan for more than three months are eligible to enroll in the country's long-term care insurance system.
