Informatl Mechanisms in Japanese Politics This article analyzes the Japanese policymaking process at three different levels: societal, institutional, and individual. It examines not only regular political institutions, but also the social and cultural environments, and differs from the standard, single-faceted treatment of Japanese politics. Policymaking in Japan has a distinctive informal aspect. Informal channels and practice are at least as important as formal ones. Special attention is being paid to three components: social environment and network (tsukiai), informal political actors and organizations (kuromaku), and the behind-the-scene consensus-building activities (nemawashi).
