Chapter

Abstract

This chapter lays out the current situation and issues in farming villages confronting population decline, tracks the efforts for community revitalisation centring on young migrants from outside, and discusses new, sustainable forms for farming villages. Within Japan, population decline and ageing are particularly marked in hilly and mountainous areas. In a serious triple D situation, in the name of a regional revitalisation policy, there has been a change of policy away from hyper-centralisation in Tokyo and towards a return to the regions. The national government is promoting a policy of migration to and settlement in the regions by young people, Community Revitalization Cooperation Fellows (CRCF). The young people who are overcoming the triple Ds, aiming to bring about a sustainable society, and creating a new, connected way of life which goes beyond the local area while building connections there, are a source of hope.
