Elderly people work out with wooden dumb-bells in the grounds of a temple in Tokyo on September 21, 2009 to celebrate Japan's Respect-for-the-Aged-Day. The number of elderly people in Japan has hit a record high this year, with one in every four women aged 65 or older. The ratio of elderly people among women came to 25.4 percent, topping 25 percent for the first time, while the ratio for men was 19.9 percent.
