Substantial support with raising children and life after retirement for peace of mind and a long, healthy life

The City of Nagoya offers its numerous support systems to everyone from babies to the senior citizens to ensure a comfortable life. It has even accomplished zero children on waiting lists for preschools*16, a worry among parents while their children are still at home. This allows working parents to go to their jobs, leaving worry at the door. Also, complete support letting children up to middle school age receive checkups at hospitals and other medical institutions without paying out of pocket*17 is available. Support is also in place for senior citizens with the Senior Citizens' Pass, a pass allowing free rides on city buses, the subway, and other public modes of transportation to enjoy trips here and there for a meaningful later stage in life.
