I first noticed Japan in 1959, thanks to being sent to Okinawa by the US Army. Since then it has stimulated my curiosity and life almost continuously. My PhD thesis focused on whether the “incremental” theory of American budgeting worked for Japan. I then tried to see if non-traditional decision-making theories helped to disentangle the development of Japanese old-age policy. More recently, I have worked on analyzing Japanese public policies in health care and long-term care, which are distinctive and interesting and also may offer lessons for other countries.
