Source is Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.

The police also announces the same kind of statistics. But those are for dead persons who died within 24 hours from the accident (and within 30 days). Both are less numbers than the statistics of "Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare". Japanese media usually use less number statistics (police stats). Wikipedia topic List of motor vehicle deaths in Japan by year also refers less number stats. 

Here are the statistics by the police.

  2008 2009 2010 2011 2012
Died within 30 days 6,067 5,831 5,806 5,507 5,237
Died within 24 hours 5,197 4,968 4,922 4,663 4,411
Died on day 2 - day 30 870 863 884 844 826
