Check out this animated GIF showing the age breakdown of Japan’s population for 1930-2055, courtesy of the National Institue of Population and Social Security Research (click for full size; males are on the left, females on the right).
When it got to 2055, I almost expected it to topple over!

… it will.
Neat animation. You can see the baby booms and the “hinoue-uma” represented clearly.
They should show this animation on loop at the Hachiko intersection, or the Altavision board in Shinjuku, and include a message saying “MAKE BABIES! LOTS OF BABIES!”
If they get started now, things should be okay by 2055.
Very cool. I’ve been drawing these freehand on the board for years; usually it comes up when I’m not prepared for it with slides, etc.
I’d love to see the same done for China with their one-child policy.
@Jade: I was curious too and found this with a quick google… http://www.iiasa.ac.at/Research/LUC/ChinaFood/data/anim/pop_ani.htm
