Amid Japan's rapidly aging population, a burgeoning industry is targeting families expecting a death in the near future.

Services on offer range from seminars on funerals and inheritance arrangements to a board game that prepares players for the financial implications of age-related decline.

With more and more elderly Japanese living alone, consultations are also offered on how to obtain guardianship needed for time in hospital, as well as how to bequeath assets to individuals and organizations other than legal heirs.
