Yet despite the enormous scholarly attention devoted to the Japanese judiciary by legal academics, anthropologists, sociologists and political scientists, it is striking that the gender composition of the Japanese bench has provoked so little research interest. This paper sets out empirical answers to the question of whether a glass ceiling operates to discourage talented Japanese women from pursuing a judicial career.
