The aim of this paper was to assess how to make community places appropriate for the coming super-aged society. The author first examined the concept of a “third place” at which all generations in a local area can share in meaningful conversation. The author then focused on how to find motivation in life for elderly people in multi-generational community settings, particularly with younger people. There were three points in creating such viable community places; wisdom in daily life, activities that motivate elderly people to make a life worth living, and the reading of classics and classical art by several generations. The conclusion was that it was most important that such “third places” have qualified younger people involved in vivid activities with elderly people. Therefore, universities in local areas have the responsibility to educate their students in preparing to meet the challenges of a super-aged society.
