Share of Ainu people in Hokkaido Japan 2006-2017, by age group

Close to 59 percent of people in Hokkaido prefecture, Japan, who identified themselves as Ainu people, were aged between 23 to 64 years old in 2017. While the majority of age groups showed a decrease in numbers, the ratio of people over 65 years old remained relatively high. This indicates that Ainu communities are no exception for the aging society of Japan.
Ainu people are indigenous peoples, who inhabit mainly around the area of Hokkaido. In the Ainu Promotion Act enacted in Japan in 2019, the race was acknowledged for the first time in the history as the indigenous peoples of Japan.
