, a scholarly collection edited by Yale political scientist Frances Mc Call Rosenbluth, lays blame on the very nature of the Japanese economic system itself.
Japanese companies practice a “lifetime employment” model, dubbed a “gentlemen’s agreement” by one Japanese economist, wherein employees generally stay with one company from college until retirement while, in exchange, that company grants them informal tenure.
In Rosenbluth’s account, this system creates a “penalty suffered by a worker taking time off to care for small children,” as any time taken off trades off with time spent building up “firm-specific skills” at your lifetime employer.
Since Japanese gender norms still demand that women take charge of child-rearing, women and men alike find it near-impossible to create a work-life balance once kids enter the picture. The obvious solution to this fertility problem, at least based on the American and European experiences, is to massively expand government support for working mothers and women.
Most women under this culture are responsible, religious and self sacrificing.
They are patience and dedicated in running the household.

“You have to resign.” And roughly 70 percent of Japanese women do, in fact, stop working after child #1.
As career-oriented women are turned away from child-rearing, so too are less career-driven men.
