Japanese retailing has long been regarded as traditional or even backwards, when in reality it has constantly demonstrated its innovativeness and dynamism. This book highlights these developments by looking at: innovations and underlying driving forces; responses of Japanese retailers to deregulation; increasing competition; changes in consumer behaviour; and internationalization during the 1990s. All of these factors are analyzed through a thorough investigation of innovative activity from the 1950s onwards.
