Great news. The sooner they lower immigration restrictions the better.

Ignoring the possible sampling errors leading to this finding, this is of course only part of the equation.

Presenting, a chart of birth data:

So far, Japan looks to be clinging on to its population a lot better than its developed Asian neighbors. And, of course, Japan is already importing semi-skilled labor and skilled labor through temporary work visas (and a lot of them go to Filipinos -- great track record! consider hiring us instead, hmm?)
So, no, Japan does not need to pull a Germany. At least, not as much as its neighbors. Nice try, though.

Poor japanese fellas, too focused on work and too much responsibility.

Japan has a TFR of 1.43 and low immigration. That looks really bad, not sure why you don't think it looks bad. Even a TFR of 2 is not enough without some decent immigration if you want to stop a decreasing and aging population.

And yes, there might be countries with even bigger problems than Japan has with it.



I thought Japan was a country with significant higher suicide rates? This may be part of the problem. Japanese people seem so obsessed with work that they don't have any time for hobbies and intimicy with other people while we actually need those to be happy. I've also noticed how shy Japanese girls can be. It's like they are trained to be scared of their sexuality.

For the sake of the Japanese race and culture, I volunteer myself to impregnate as many as possible. Only doing my selfless duty for humanity. Yes, they will only be half-Japanese, but I think that will have to do.

Brother, I will join you so as not to overexert yourself!

Ha, was thinking the same thing when I read the OP.



Proud to be a Californian.

If they opened the floodgates to immigration, with their rate of births declining it would take too long before the Japanese are the ethnic minority in their own country.

They don't have to open their floodgates. It's fine if they just let me in.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I love that people overlook some basic shit in surveys like this.... half of the under 40s are virgins?!!! man that's shocking.... did you know that more than 25% of the people under 40.... are 10 or under, think about the ages included in the survey before you start to imagine anime girls falling from the tree's over there begging for Senpai to notice them, considering that the age of consent there ranges from 13-18 depending on the region (damn you survey for making me google that, now I have that weird question in my google history forever lol) that means that if keeping to the age of consent and of course the law there, people will say they've not had sex before that age when surveyed because it would be a crime to suggest otherwise.

If someone handed you a survey which said had you downloaded pirated TV shows and software off the internet... would you not hesitate slightly before ticking "of fucking course I have I know what a computer is"

so yeah....

Survey covers a group of people that around 50% of whom wouldn't be legal to have sex, since obviously anyone who dies before the age of 18 would fall into that half but no one is going to be in the region of 18-40 without having been alive for the first 18 years, so if you look at the numbers from a realistic point of view... it means that 100% if not more of the people who could be having legal sex... are having sex.

 

I'm sure the 'national fertility survey' didn't ask 5 years old and this survery is obviously about those who are allowed to have sex

Not sure how you didn't think about that 

Surveys and statistics like this are often done with intention to prove a point before they begin, the information in op and the survey relates to people under 40 with no distinction as to what ages are and aren't covered. Having read the op and the linked newspaper I see the base age are omitted completely as such the survey wouldn't need to survey children in the age range that can't have sex it can simple include them in the people who aren't in that 0-40 bracket
