This is sad, but to put in in perspective with other countries;
Japans youth suicide rate is about average amongst OECD countries.
NZ (my country) has BY FAR the highest rate of youth suicide, at nearly 4 x that of Japan! NZ is an outlier on many such bad stats.
Japan’s rate is more than the UK but less than US, Canada, Australia etc.
If you’d like to see where other countries sit, here’s a link to an oecd report:
