By gender, there were 7.95 million boys and 7.58 million girls, the ministry said.
That's like 400 thousands unmarried Japanese guys in future.

I like how every time this exact passage is repeated:
Immigration is a controversial subject in Japan, where many pride themselves on cultural and ethnic homogeneity, even as the population ages and its workforce shrinks.
What exactly is bad about this? Should people only care about money and economy? Not all people subscribe to the dogma of multiculturalism.
I guess articles like this this continue as long as Japan stays relatively well off (being a 3rd world economy sucks, yeah), with low levels of immigration. It's very existence ruins all the framework of forced diversity.

For us foreigners living in Japan to say they shouldn't accept more refugees is kinda hypocritical considering they let us stay.
Nothing hypocritical here. There's a big difference between legal immigration and seeking asylum. I guess most of the foreigners here fall into first category.

Russia played this dirty game before, by taking coal from occupied Ukrainian territories and "rebranding" it so it can be later sold to Poland.
A government of thugs.
