Describes the results of a nine-month research project aimed at illuminating the realm of "intergenerational initiatives" in Japan conducted by the authors in 1994-95. Looks at the conceptual and organizational roots of the initiatives, school-based initiatives, community based events and activities, and other frameworks for promoting intergenerational discourse. Focuses on the positive aspects of Japan's aging population and its interaction with the young, which the authors see as a powerful stabilizing force in Japanese society.
