Japan’s population has fallen by nearly one million, according to new statistics – the first decline since official census records began in the 1920s.
The country lost 947,345 people – more than the population of San Francisco – between 2010 and 2015.
The decline of 0.7% to 127.1 million has been predicted by the government annually but the new statistics confirm the trend.
It is an indication that as the nation gets older, and people have fewer babies at a later age, a demographic crisis is looming.
