Japan is one of the most developed countries in the world. In addition to being known as a state of cutting-edge technology, Japan is also known as a cultured country. In the midst of highly developed infrastructure development, Japan remains strong with its original tradition. Proven with still preserved cultural relics in the form of art-typical art from several centuries ago. Until now the culture is still continuously instilled from generation to generation in young Japanese.
The life pattern of Japanese society is balanced with intelligence. When Hiroshima and Nagasaki were atomized by Americans 66 years ago, Japan suffered a downturn. Poverty and health problems were the main obstacles of the day. However, in just a few short years Japan can re-shine. Patterns of Japanese society who work hand in hand to restore the glory of the country supported by high intelligence and spirit. Not only that, this cherry country also has an unyielding society in gaining knowledge. No wonder the country with a population of about 120 million people has many world-class inventors. The fact that can be seen now, the decline of Japan and the independence of Indonesia fell in the same year, but Japan can be more successful than Indonesia today.
This success is certainly achieved with high morale. No wonder if Japan became one of the pilot countries for developing countries in Asia. The discipline and regularity of the people of this country also deserves thumbs up. This is one of the bridges of Japanese success.
On the other hand, Japan is one of the countries with the highest life expectancy in the world. Can also mean the Japanese people have a long life. This age problem is supported by their lifestyle and health. It is also related to the standard of living and old age guarantees also for Japanese society. This four-season country ranks the top with the number of elderly (elderly) more than the birth rate there. According to U.S. Census Bureau, International Data Base, estimated in 2050 the number of births in Japan to reach the lowest point.
If you have ever watched a Japanese movie or drama on television or DVD, you may often see part-time workers in public places as the elderly. It is common. It is precisely when finding a part-time worker who is still young makes the Japanese think that there is a certain purpose behind it all. For example, to increase allowance (usually done by foreign students), filling vacation time, or indeed coming from poor families. But in general will often encountered these part time workers are the elderly.
Elderly in Japan is known to be very independent. All the work they can do on their own, even with a fairly old age. Positive thinking habits make the elderly in Japan look more youthful than the elderly in other countries. Even with such old age they can still work productively. The Japanese instill this independence in society in general. The goal is that all the time can be used for useful things. At a young age they work in the office, and when they are old they fill the time by working part time. Although in fact the average of the elderly in Japan has had the savings of old days that can live, but they are very confident in this hereditary order. They have found it helpful to use their spare time in their old age. They will not feel lonely despite their own lives.
Independence elderly in Japan is deserved thumbs up. Culture is not dependent on others is always implanted in Japanese society. Unlike the elderly in Indonesia who live with his extended family and enjoy the old days by relaxing at home or a walk. In Japan there are elderly who choose to live alone because they do not want to bother his son. He can choose to stay in a nursing home or live in his own home, because it is in Japanese culture, after the child married (especially girls), the child will follow where her husband left. But in some families there are also still living with these grandparents (elderly). While living with large families, these elderly people do not necessarily keep hands and expect everything from their children. They are more creative and stay sociable. They open businesses and even make their business hereditary to their children.
Both from rich and poor families, the lives of relatively prosperous Japanese society. The Japanese government also does not provide age restrictions for these elderly to continue to work. Opening a business on their own or working part time on a company does not make them differentiated. Being a janitor, transport driver, or restaurant waiter, as long as they can work well will not be a problem for the government or business owners.
After retirement, usually the elderly in Japan will not linger for unemployment. Although they do not work part-time though, they will still look for activities. For example by playing arcade or more popularly known as ding dong machine. The last few years are known to many elderly spend their time in shopping centers and malls that provide ding dong machine. The Japanese elderly play ding dong to gain fun and add friends. Another reason for the ding dong game is very interesting and makes the elderly people feel challenged. A challenging game will make the brain think strasegis. This kind of brain work can prevent premature senility.
It seems that the elderly ding dong fans just spend their time playing games. When in fact from the ding dong machine they play, there are various benefits. Benefits include the grinding of the brain and memory, stretching the body / fingers while being mengoprasikan ding dong machine, and add friends in the environment of play. Not only young people who can find friends, the elderly can also find new friends and experiences with ding dong fans they meet. It is so very useful and fun, so make the activity of playing ding dong on this elderly continues until now.
This pattern of life is actually happening in Japan. That is also reflected and can be seen on our screen about Japanese society. So it is not wrong if Japan is a penutan for other countries in various aspects of life. Both in technology, infrastructure development, culture, until the lifestyle and customs of the elderly can go well in this country. Can be likened even though the elderly of the elderly Japan still has a bright future. All because of the support of the family, government, and culture of Japanese society well ordered.
