6 Reasons Why The Japanese Aren't Having Babies

The island country with the world’s third-longest life expectancy has an increasing aging population, with the median age being 47 years and more than 50,000 people over 100. On the other hand, as far as the younger natives are concerned, things are looking grim for Japan, the problem being a steady decline in the number of babies born each year.

Why Millennials Aren't Having Kids

More and more millennials are making the choice not to have kids. And for the most part, it comes down to one simple reason... Money!

Today the average cost of raising a child to the age of 18 is $230,000. In fact, finances are the number one factor why millennials aren't having kids or are having fewer kids than they would like to.

In this video, I talk about some of the costs associated with having kids and what it means for millennials who can't afford to children.

Dealing with First World Problems: The Japanese Fertility Decline

This persuasive speech is submitted by Gabriel C. Pascua of HUMSS 11-B.

Topic: Dealing with First World Problems: The Japanese Fertility Decline

1. To be able to identify the key factors that are contributing to the persisting population decline in Japan
2. To propose a feasible plan that seeks to focus on one major contributor of the Japanese fertility crisis each year, in the span of four years
3. To justify the need for international organizations to further study the depopulation in Japan to predict whether other first-world countries will experience it

Thesis Statement: The Robotics, Women, Aphrodisiac, Immigration (RWIA) Initiative, a proposed four-year plan dedicated to investigating and resolving the Japanese population decline will yield sufficient evidence needed to prevent further fertility declines from transpiring in other countries, specifically first-world countries.

Kyoto Japan 京都 - To Be Honest We Only Saw The Super Famous Bits...

Kyoto with a baby was super fun! Kyoto is well worth a visit if you're in Japan. There are so many famous, iconic things to do in the area.

If you are are planning to travel kyoto with family this should really help especially if you want to travel kyoto with kids! Travel is so different with kids! We feel like we found some places that worked well for us as a family - and I even got to do something for myself too! Mum Win!

Fushimi Inari Taisha - These are the famous iconic orange gates. Although this place can get very busy and crowded, there are sections where you can walk down paths back on yourself and there are less people. You can find less crowded spots to get that iconic empty photo. Also keep walking up the mountain to find more beautiful temples.

Bamboo Forest - A short train ride from the town centre (you need to get off the train at Saga-Arashiyama station and walk less 1km to the bamboo forest). Once you are in the forest you can enjoy wondering around winding paths through the surreal bamboo.

Geisha District - (Gion district) is home to several beautiful temples and lots of very beautiful girls wearing the traditional kimono dresses and plenty of white make up. This is a great spot to wander round, eat street food and get some awesome Japanese photos.

Dressing in Traditional Kimono - this is a great way to get to grips with Japanese culture and get some great selfies. The Ninja school, Ninja Dojo, have a Kimono experience. Contact them for more information:

Trying The Local Street Food - There is plenty of street food around. Prices range depending on where you are and what you are looking for. You can generally get something quite tasty for £2-3 (around $5). If you are on a tighter budget, then there are lots of convenience stores around that offer cheap food.

Ninja School Training - This was SO much fun we even made a special video on this one!
You get to learn ninja philosophy, Ninja moves and Ninja tricks and equipment.

Visiting the Bowing Deer of Nara - A short train ride from Kyoto you can visit Nara. Nara has a lovely walking street and some gorgeous parks and temples with deer wondering around. You can buy food to feed the deer and some of them do actually bow! Be careful though - they aren't all polite - we did see a few deer getting a bit too enthusiastic about food and going for peoples clothes instead.
