Japan's population data (Asahi Shimbun)
The Japanese government released a set of population survey data. The total population of Japan has been decreasing for 10 years since its peak in 2009, but the foreign population resident in Japan has been increasing, exceeding 2% of the total population for the first time.
According to Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun reported on the 10th, Japan's Ministry of general affairs conducted a population survey based on registered resident information. According to the published data, as of January 1, 2019, the total population of Japan was 24.776364, a decrease of 433239 over the previous year (a decrease of 0.35%). Japan's population has been decreasing for 10 consecutive years since 2009. This year's decline is the largest since 1968.
In 2018, there were 921000 births and 1363564 deaths in Japan. The statistics found that the population was less than 125 million, the first time since 1996.

Compared with the Japanese population, the number of foreigners living in Japan has increased significantly. At present, 2.667199 foreigners live in Japan, an increase of 169543 over the previous year (an increase of 6.79%). This is the first time that foreigners have exceeded 2% of Japan's total population since they were registered in the resident information statistics system in 2012.
Japanese media said that the number of foreign tourists to Japan increased, and many Japanese enterprises expanded the recruitment of foreign clerks to receive a large number of tourists. In addition, as one of the countries with the most serious population aging and negative growth in the world, the Japanese government began to implement a series of new bills to increase the introduction of foreign workers. These are the reasons for the sharp increase in foreign population. (Shan Ning, overseas Internet king)
