ABSTRACT

According to a recent survey, Japanese people selected “listening to one’s parents” as the most appropriate way of filial piety, and followed by “being healthy” and “meeting with (visiting) their parents often.”All generations except for 40s, chose “listening to one’s parents” as their first choice of filial piety.Only 2% of people selected “financial support (or gifts) to one’s parents” as an appropriate way of filial piety.Interestingly, approximately 50 % of people spent < ¥10,000 for filial pietyactivities. Among them, approximately 30% of people did not spend a penny for filial pietyactivities! This result suggests that Japanese people tend to emphasize emotional and spiritual (indirect)filial pietyrather than financial support (direct filial piety).
