Today I read a news article that was about Japan's shrinking population. According to the news article, Japan's birthrate has dropped to a historical level, the lowest since data gathering began in1899. Along with low birthrate issue, the country is facing another dilemma, and that is Japan's population is aging.It's projected that by 2036, one in three people in Japan will be elderly.

今天我读了一篇关于日本人口下降的新闻。据报道称,自1899年开始的人口统计数据显示,日本目前的人口出生率达到了历史的最低点。除了人口出生率低的问题,日本还面临着另一困境,那便是日本的人口老龄化问题。有研究预测,截至2036年,日本三分之一的人口将会是老年人。
