Japan is one of the countries in the world with good reputation in terms of education. However, it does not mean Japan has no problem in the delivery of education. Problems concerning student behavior also happened in Japan, one of them is futōkō or school absenteeism in this case the absence of students in school for long periods of time. Students who are absent in school for a long time will have a negative impact, especially in terms of socialization. The increasing number of students who are absent from school leads to anxiety among parents and the community, so the government is considered important to address the problem immediately.
