Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Although farming is obviously a large part of rural population decline, it's not the whole thing.  Where I live, the children of people who own prosperous restaurants and shops also leave.  The children of the owners of construction companies leave.  Many, many people leave, whether there is a job and a life for them or not, whether their prospects in Tokyo are any better or not.
