Japan Offers Financial Incentives For Families to Move Out of Tokyo

The Japanese government is offering families 1 million yen (~$7,700) per child if they move out of Tokyo, the country’s capital, CNN reports.

The incentive is part of an effort to get residents to leave the city to revitalize rural regions heavily impacted by the country’s falling birth rate.

A spokesperson from the central government said that starting in April, couples with children and single parents will be eligible to receive the relocation benefits if they move out of the Toyko metropolitan area to less densely populated areas around the country, per CNN.
