Assisted Suicide In Places Like Japan.

Assisted suicide remains a controversial issue just about wherever it is brought up. But I was wondering something.

How does the issue fare in a place like Japan? Think about it. In Japanese culture, as I understand it, suicide can be an honorable act. So assisted suicide for those in terminal pain should be a non-issue there, right? Yet I’ve never heard of Japan legalizing assisted suicide.

So how exactly does the issue of assisted fare in places where suicide is accepted (for various reasons) to begin with? (I’m sure Japan is not the only place.)
