Chapter Summary

This chapter summarises the theory and practice of the application of international law in Japan. The author's objective is to summarise the historical and current legal theories and practices in Japan related to the application of international law in municipal legal relations. In dealing with the issue of the application of international law in Japan, it is useful to understand the historical development of the modern Japanese legal system, particularly in relation to international law. Sakutaro Tachi, a very influential international law professor of Tokyo Imperial University between the First and Second World Wars, took a different position from Matsubara. The Meiji Constitution did not have any provision concerning the application and implementation of international law in Japan. The situation totally changed after the Second World War, or, in particular, under the Showa Constitution.

Keywords: international law in Japan; Meiji constitution; Second World War; Showa constitution
