Though Japan has come to play a considerable part in the world economy, little is known in Western countries of its arrangements in the field of local public finance. This monograph is intended to fill this gap. It investigates the whole area of local public finance in Japan, at both the prefectural and municipal levels, including expenditure responsibilities, taxation powers and the different kinds of intergovernmental grants arrangements. As Japan is a unitary country, the central government has strong controlling powers over both levels of local government.
