"Modern life in Japan, which has had its foot to the economic pedal for decades, may have come at a cost: the unpicking of traditional social structures. “The increase in loneliness, and lonely deaths, is partly tied to traditional family structures falling apart”. Many people end up working several jobs to make ends meet, allowing little time to socialize. For Japan, part of the answer to the growing loneliness is technology ? and that technology is becoming increasingly life-like."
