Japanese Gender Bending Boarding School Mystery

I need help figuring out the name of a weird Japanese movie I watched some years ago. The movie was not new at the time but it was in color, 80’s or later I would guess! The movie features a group of boys – all played by female actors – who spend their summer break at their boarding school when everyone else has gone home. There are NO adults in the movie whatsoever and the boys tend to themselves; making breakfast, listening to the radio and other exciting activities. One boy ends up commiting suicide by throwing himself in the ocean in the very beginning of the movie but soon thereafter another boy arrives by train who, although looking identical to the dead boy, claims to be unaware of the dead boy and the suicide. I think he, understandably, became increasingly more disturbed by the comparisons to the dead boy the other boys made to him. In between there is also a gender bending boys’ love story going on where jealousy runs WILD! I think the movie concluded in another suicide attempt by the ocean cliffs at night. Does somebody recognise this hahah? Anyone??
