Few Old Maids In Japan.
Ac ording to I lie statistics of.the
Japanese blue book, there are very
few Japanese women who do not
marry. The majority of Japanese
girls marry at twenty-one years of

twenty-six, but marriage al the age

does not join a Buddhist monastery
marries. The old bachelor and the
old maid are almost unknown in
the land of the chrysanthemum.
