Commercial Policies in Japan and the Problem of the Deindustrialization of Central Areas of Local Cities

Abstract: When it comes to commercial policies, from the late 1990s toward the mid-2000s, there have been no efficient political measures taken in Japan to reuse city center areas while moving large-scale retailers to suburban areas. As a result, in highly motorized local cities with relatively small economies, the city center area tends to be deindustrialized, which has been a serious problem in such cities.

Keywords: local city, deindustrialization of city center areas, commercial policy, Japan
