Japanese geriatric lifestyle. Elderly Japanese playing volleyball in a pool at a community centre in Nago, Okinawa, Japan. Okinawa is famed for the longevity of its citizens, and, as in the rest of Japan, the elderly are treated with great respect. Centres like these have community-based nursing and assistance staff, and they are places where the elderly can relax, take part in activities, and meet their friends.
