I’ve been meaning to ask you for a while, whenever I’m watching something related to Japan be it anime or movies, I can’t help but notice: they rarely have more than 2-3 kids. How many children are there in an average Japanese family? Is not having many children a custom in Japan?
Correct, it’s very rare to have more than 3 kids in Japan. In fact it’s quite usual now to have no kids, the vast majority of my friends in their 20s or 30s don’t have kids and don’t plan on having them – there is a huge population time bomb going on in Japan!
