dc.description.abstract This paper describes the scale of the elderly care problem in Japan, examines the government’s role in providing care and, to a lesser extent, considers the market’s role before and after the introduction of Long-Term Care Insurance (LTCI). It also looks at changing patterns in state provision of childcare. The paper expands on the idea of the “care diamond” and applies it to care for the elderly and children in Japan in order to compare the two. en
