Moreover in order to allow some companies to experiment more and come up with new technologies the government is providing temporary ease on regulations. Using regulatory sandbox the government has given a free hand to few firms so that they can bring something new and different for the people.  

The workforce of Japan has reduced drastically which is why delivery by drones and self-driving vehicles are an urgency for the country. The example of this drastic reduction in workforce of Japan is Yamato Holdings Co the largest parcel shipper in Japan, who said that it would increase prices and cut delivery volumes due to shortage of employers. This came as a shock for the consumers.

Moreover Japan is looking for financial technology for future development. Also government is working on a strategy to introduce free of cost education for low-income families.
