DEATH-LIFE Introduction-Roppongi Hills over tombs. Animism and the present of death seen in Aoyama cemetery

The discussion theme for the "DEATH-LIFE TOKYO" team is the future life and death of Tokyo, one of the most aging cities in the world. Tokyo's aging rate (percentage of the elderly population in the population) is estimated to reach 23.2% in 2020 and 33.7% in 2060 (*). In addition, some researchers believe that the life expectancy will reach 100 years by 2045 due to advances in medical technology and so on.

Future Summit Tokyo: Over three days—May 25-27, 2018—selected participants convened in the Tokyo Midtown Atrium to consider Tokyo as the laboratory of the future. What are the prospects of life and death in the city with the most rapidly aging society? How is fashion developing in one of the world’s most technologically progressive cities? And what is the relationship between the public and private spheres in a megalopolis in which there are hardly any public spaces?
