Latest update: April 2022 

Japan is a small-scale producer of grain, with a relatively large population, making it an important import customer. Japan's cultivated acreage shrank year after year from 6.09 million hectares in 1961 to 4.37 million hectares in 2020. After 1989, the cultivated acreage has continued to decrease due to diversion into residential land and continuously ruined land resulting from natural disasters.
