This research shows that the Japanese rice policy has affected the volume of
exported and imported rice; moreover, multilateral and bilateral agreements have also
affected Japanese rice policy. Japan's institution of subsidies and trade barriers has made
its rice products too expensive for foreign trade and its domestic consumers. Since the
WTO agreement has forced Japan to open its market gradually over six years, Japan may
be unable to compete internationally because of its limited land, high labor costs, and the
field utility fees.
