During the course of modernization, Japanese government had been eager to import various kinds of policy ideas from the developed countries. This import oriented culture and good economic condition of latter half of 20th century had prevented Japanese original policy analysis. Established way of policy making during high economic growth was based on mutual adjustments among ministries without analysis, because both political parties and cabinet could not integrate policy matters comprehensively. In recent years, difficult economic situation and political change require the reform of policy process and the introduction of policy analysis method. Higher education for policy analysis, policy oriented research institute, and policy analysts have been growing rapidly, and they are going to prepare new stage of policy process and policy analysis in Japan.
