What is it with Japan and elaborate excursions into self destruction?

The country that gave the world Seppuku and the kamikaze is apparently now engaged in demographic suicide.

The statistics are sobering and, from an historical perspective, quite bizarre.  What could be more unnatural than young people of child bearing age in such large numbers not pairing off and having children?

It’s inexplicable.
