Japan’s population will fall everywhere except in Tokyo by 2045 and even growth in the capital will likely be marginal, according to a government estimate released Friday.

The estimate by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research said Japan’s population is expected to stand at 106.42 million in 2045, down about 20 million from 2015. The estimate is based on the 2015 national census.
