HIROSAKI, Japan—Many areas of Japan are running so short of working-age people that local-government administrators are helping out on farms.
On a recent weekend, Yoshiaki Kato joined a few elderly women in harvesting apples at an orchard in Hirosaki, a city in the country’s north.
Mr. Kato also occasionally carried baskets of the fruit and loaded them onto a cart before driving them away to be sorted by size and quality.
