Despite a range of inhibiting factors, such as the earlier reluctance of the Japanese population to embrace the PC and the country’s restrictive regulatory environment, Japan dominates e-commerce activity in the Asia Pacific region. Yahoo! Japan continues to be the country’s most popular Website and competes closely with Rakuten Ichiba in the online shopping space. This report describes how Japan is approaching the development of e-services, including e-commerce, e-cash, e-banks, online trading, e-government and e-entertainment. Major e-service providers are also discussed.
