– Chion 2022-03 No. 228 In Japan, new year starts in April, and it becomes a busy season of moving at or around cherry blossom, for students and families moving due to job changes. After the pandemic, and first time since the establishment of Tokyo, the general population shows a negative growth – moving in is less than moving out.
