The aging population in Japan is rapidly increasing. As the baby boom has gone into retirement age aligned with a declining birthrate and projected longevity, self-subsistence has become a key issue in local communities for senior citizens and their relationship with the community at large. With this backdrop it has become imperative how one spends their golden years after retirement. Through rich wording, book reading is one way of making full use of language power as a communication tool in order to sustain stable and vibrant community and communicative continuity. Therefore, in this study, I focused on reading activities during this period in Takizawa, Iwate Prefecture, Japan. To increase communicative power among local Takizawa senior citizens, I referenced activities from a British book reading charity organization. By reading aloud participants created a communicative atmosphere to listen to each other and express themselves for the benefits of good mental health, community cohesiveness and subsistence living. Based on these results my investigation of prior assumptions found this environment to be beneficial for communities in Takizawa.
