Starting from one of my hobbies watching Japanese movie and Japanese anime, had crossed my mind about the development of the youth there. I will try to share a little information from the statistics agency in Tokyo about the development of young people in Japan today.

The Japan Times launched the data Wednesday (10/1/2018), or two days after the celebration of Seijin no Hi (Hari Raya Datangnya Age) on Monday (8/1/2018).

Seijin no Hi is the annual celebration held every second Monday in January.

The tradition that began in April 2, 2017 and April 1, 2018.

Data collected from 23 regions throughout Tokyo shows that of 83,764 new adults, 13 percent, or 10,959 inside were foreigners.

This means, 2 of 10 young people living in Tokyo are foreigners

Shinjuku became the most populated area of foreign adults.

The first week of 2018, there are 1837 adults, or 45.9 percent of the total number in Tokyo.

Data from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government indicate that foreigners are dominated by those who use student visas and who are in training.

The Tokyo government explained, there is an increase in the number of students and student visa participants training.

In 2012, there are 58,764 people. That number soared almost double to 104,889 people throughout 2017.

"This trend will continue for a long time," said Tokyo International Exchange Center Director Tokyo Toshihiro Menju.

The opinion was made by Tokyo government staff in the field of international relations, Nobuharu Hikiba.

"Many foreigners are using long-term visas to stay in Tokyo," Hikiba said.

Most foreigners who use student visas and trainees, Hikiba said, work part time for 28 hours per week, or in accordance with the standard of the visa holder.
