Abstract
The article contains an analysis of administrative and territorial division system and regional policy in Japan. The special attention is paid to the current “multipolar” concept, which is being realized in regional planning. The comprehensive development plan called “Grand Design of the21st century”, which is based on sustainable and postindustrial development concepts, is analyzed in detail. The author points out the shift from hierarchical policymaking system to the combination of two approaches, including the growing role of local population in decision- making processes. She also analyzes cases of Hokkaido and Tohoku regions, particularly the plans and measures for Tohoku recovery after Great East Japan earthquake in March 2011, and further perspectives of this region.
