The Japanese competition law (AMA) has been developed and has changed under varying political and economic circumstances across time. Although the AMA was enacted and amended under the influence of US and EU competition laws, Japanese-style characteristics distinguish the AMA vividly from other competition laws. In order to better understand how Japan shaped its own view on the AMA, this chapter provides an overview of the history of the AMA enforcement, and points out major differences in the AMA when compared to the US or EU competition laws. It subsequently summarizes factors that triggered or influenced the recent AMA amendments, aiming to depict the uniqueness of the AMA in Asian competition laws.
