Japan is closing maternity wards and elementary schools. Not many children get born. Society is aging quickly.
- @14 minutes: fewer Japanese marry. Only 2% of children born out of wedlock. Only 27% of couples have sex every week.
- @15 minutes: Don’t miss the men with the virtual girl friends. One of them is married and hides the girl friend from his wife. He is not sure which of the two he would choose: wife or computer program.
In the video, Japanese men keep repeating that a virtual girl friend is much nicer. The virtual girl friends are usually are teenage age, and the man plays the role of a teenager, too. Virtual girl friends are not messy, no trouble. Why bother with a real woman.
Though, there is a certain desire for a real woman.
- @32 minutes: Amazing Japanese Pompom dancers, minimum age requirement: 55 years, oldest is 81. They dance nicely enough to look like teenage cheer leaders, when seen from a distance.
- @40: 20% of Japanese prisoners are over 65 years old. 50% of them reoffend.
- @45: 70% of Japanese women drop out of the work force after they get children. With a lack of work force, this is considered a calamity.
- @40 minutes: immigration as the solution?
