We start our journey of the best places to grow old in with Japan.

The only Asian country on our list, Japan has the highest percentage of seniors as compared to any country. Around 24.1% of Japan’s population is aged 65 years or older.

With around 31 million people over 65 years, Japan is estimated to have almost 40% of its population made of people over 65 years by 2050.

So, as you can see, the Japanese population is very rapidly ageing, due to the decrease of births and as a result of a post–World War II baby boom.
