  • 2013 and 2015 data is taken from statistics from major production regions.
  • 2011 and 2012 data is also not representative of total production due to the limitation of commercial shipments due to contamination from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant meltdown.
  • Data taken from Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries report: http://www.maff.go.jp/j/tokei/sokuhou/syukaku_tya_syusan_15_2/
