I have been noticing junior high students shooting up and a lot of them are now as tall as me.

But it’s true that just like in Europe (and I assume other places in the world. Australia?) Every generation seems taller than the previous one. Reply Japan Australia says: June 29, 2012 at 8:17 am Hi David, Wow! You are pretty tall. I am around 183cm which is average for Australia but tall for Japan. Every generation seems to be taller than the previous, but I have noticed the difference a lot more in Japan over the last 15 years.
