Retirement age

People in Japan normally retire at the age of 60.

A friend of mine, a university professor, says he can work until he is 65 at his university.

I just had to ask him, "Do you know how lucky you are?"

His answer was "oh, yes. Of course, I'm very lucky."

He is American, though, he has been living in Tokyo for 30 years. So nicely Japanized.
