Abstract:Today, Japan is the largest foreign aid donor in the world with an annual government expenditure of over ten billion dollars. In its recent development of foreign aid activities, Japan has expanded its educational assistance to developing countries and has steadily increased the number of training programs and centers for technical assistance to developing nations both in Japan and overseas. In addition, the Japanese government also has begun to support the rapidly increasing number of foreign students at Japanese colleges and universities.
Although Japan has indicated its willingness to cooperate with educational development of the Third World, the contents of Japanese educational assistance are still relatively unknown to the rest of the world. The purpose of this research is to investigate the nature of Japanese educational assistance to developing nations. In this research, the questions addressed are: What are the most important features of Japanese foreign assistance that are different from those of other donors? What kinds of educational assistance does Japan provide and why? What are the problems of Japan's educational assistance?
In conclusion, the author points out the lack of a mature Japanese aid philosophy due to Japan's lack of experience as a foreign aid donor, and recommends development of a clear policy for future activities of Japanese educational assistance and expansion of Japanese educational assistance.
