 Japans population has been declining for 10 consecutive years. Last year, the number of babies born reached a new low.


The report says Japans total population has fallen sharply due to a record low number of babies born in 2018. According to the previous population statistics released by Japans Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, 918,000 Japanese babies were born in 2018, less than one million for three consecutive years. The report shows that the population of all parts of Japan is declining except Tokyo Circle (including Tokyo Capital and surrounding Saitama, Chiba and Kanagawa Counties) and Okinawa. Among them, Nagoya Circle (Aichi, Triple and Qifu Counties) and Kansai Circle (Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and Hyogo Counties) have the largest population reduction. In addition, the report also shows that the number of foreigners registered in Japan increased by 169,543 compared with the previous year, totaling 266,7199. According to the report, the unipolar trend of population concentration in Japan towards the Tokyo Circle is still grim and needs to be changed urgently.
