Abstract

It has been argued that changes in Japanese policy after the 1995 Great Hanshin-Awaji (Kobe) earthquake heralded a significant shift in the Japanese government bureaucracy's attitude towards non-profit organizations (NPOs). The Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011 was also suggested as furthering this process. Evidence is presented that indicates this view is optimistic. Relaxations in financial disclosure requirements and capital requirements after 1995 have been re-interpreted and re-framed by the bureaucracy. The potentially beneficial impacts on the structure of the Japanese NPO sector are insignificant or reversed during implementation by the Japanese bureaucracy. This suggests any post-tsunami changes will also be ineffective. The Japanese bureaucracy has re-asserted its control of the NPO sector to the extent of NPO funds being sequestered by government if their use is deemed inadequate or slow.
