Japan's 18-year-old population has temporarily leveled off, but in 2018 it was about 1 million, about 8,000 less than the previous year. It is expected to decrease rapidly in the future, with the number reaching about 118 in 2024.The decline in the 106-year-old population has become a major cause of anxiety on the Aoyama Gakuin University side, and the desire to surely attract students by increasing the number of affiliated schools can be seen through.
