The number of children in Japan has declined for thirty-five years in a row, and recent data paints a grim picture.
As of April 1 of this year, there were 16 million Japanese aged 15 or younger. That is a decline of 150,000 from the previous year.
Okinawa is the prefecture with the highest percentage of children: 17.4%. Akita has the lowest percentage: 10.6%. Tokyo was the second lowest at 11.3%.
