Japan’s so-called ‘lost decade’ is now being slowly lost to history, but the country’s future still remains as uncertain as ever. The population is rapidly ageing. Economically things continue to stagnate. And that much-touted modern saviour, Abenomics, is anything but a foregone conclusion.
A story that is horribly familiar to a growing number of the nation’s citizens too. Ageing can be tough. Surviving a real struggle. And the way forwards anything but clear.
