I've been living and working in Hong Kong since 2016 as an SEO Professional.

In 2011, Hong Kong had a higher life expectancy than Japan. Life expectancy in Hong Kong is 83.42 years, while Japan is only 82.59. Hong Kong has a longer life expectancy due to a number of reasons, including the territory’s high per capita income, low infant mortality rate, and high degree of access to health care.Hong Kong has always had a longer life expectancy than Japan. Life expectancy in Hong Kong was roughly ten years higher than in Japan in the early twentieth century. This disparity began to close in the mid-twentieth century, when Japan’s economy expanded fast and its residents’ health improved. However, the life expectancy gap has began to expand again in recent years, as Hong Kong’s life expectancy has continued to rise while Japan’s has stayed relatively stable.Hong Kong has a higher life expectancy than Japan for a variety of reasons. First, because Hong Kong has a greater per capita income than Japan, residents have more money to spend on health care and other health-related expenses. Second, Hong Kong has a lower infant mortality rate than Japan, which suggests that more newborns live to maturity in Hong Kong. Finally, Hong Kong residents have greater access to health care than people in Japan, which implies they are more likely to receive prompt and effective medical treatment.Finally, Hong Kong has a better life expectancy than Japan due to a range of variables such as the territory’s high per capita income, low infant mortality rate, and high degree of access to health care.
