Japan senior living – A cloud of silver lining
Japan has emerged as one of the top three commercial real estate markets in the world, as a result of structural economic reforms, the launch of Abenomics in 2013, monetary expansion and flexible fiscal policy.
Combined with a progressively aging population and a low fertility rate, demand for senior homes across key regional cities in Japan has steadily increased. We anticipate this will only rise further in the next few decades.
Japan’s demographics has been shifting for decades, and now with a super-aged society, there is an even more heightened focus on the provision of elderly care.
