Suicide is not on the decline. In Japan, a suicide is only a suicide upon examination by a medical examiner aka a doctor. Otherwise, it is not. The reported cases of suicide is inaccurate due to the over burdened healthcare system. Either way, it's very sad.

Essentially they've been serving contaminated radioactive food to all those kids and teachers. This is a crime. What is worse is that they're not investigated or doing anything about it.

Open Minded :
Farming is agriculture and is an industry, I don't know anything about landscaping in Japan but I do know they receive government subsidies which come from the pockets of tax payers.
I also know, the amount of subsidies they receive depends on the amount they produce or rather, DON'T produce. Where is the sense economically in that? Farmers receive more to produce less.

Oh yea, how do you defend an industry who struggles to survive with a 800% subsidy? LOL

Japan needs to stop kidding itself as new markets are desperately needed for it's overpriced priced products. Japan needs this more than America, and America knows that! The days of having your cake and eating it too, are over. Anyways, it's up to Japan to decide!
