  OGAMA,Japan,this mountain village on the West Coast, withere(枯萎) to eight aging residents, concluded recently that it could no longer go on. So, after months of anguish, the villagers settled on a drastic solution;:selling all of Ogama to an industrial waste company from Tokyo, which will trun it into a landfill.

  With the proceeds, the villagers plan to pack up everything, including their family graves, and move in the next few years to yet uncertain destinations, most likely becoming the first community in Japan to cease to exist voluntarily.

  “I’m sure we’re the first ones to have made such a proposal,”, said Kazuo Miyasaka,64,thevillage leader.”It’s because there’s no future for us here, zero.”

  On a hill overlooking a field of overgrown bushes, surrounded by the sounds of a running stream and a bush warbler (鸣鸟), Miyasaka pointed below with his right index finger. “I never imagined it would come to this,”he said. “I mean,those all used to be rice fields.”

  Ogama’s decision, though extreme, points to a larger problem beetting Japan,which has one of the world’s fastest-graying societies and whose population began declinlng last year for the first time. As rural Japan becomes increasingly depopulated, many villages and hamlets (小村) like Ogama, along with their traditions and histories, risk vanishing.

  Japan is dotted with so many such communities that academics have coined a term ----“villages that have reached their limits”--- to describe those with populations that are more than half elderly. Out of 140 villages in Monzen, the municipality that includes Ogama, 40 percent have fewer than 10 households, inhabited mostly by ghe elderly.
