This chapter argues that Japan’s sluggish economic performance contrasts starkly with the eruption of activity in law reform. The chapter explores the extent to which this law reform has “Americanized” the Japanese model of corporate governance. Although there has been some movement to a more shareholder-oriented model of corporate governance, the chapter concludes that it is too simplistic to characterise Japan’s reforms to corporate law and practice as straightforward Americanisation.
