Abstract: An overview of rehabilitation services for disabled persons in Japan is provided, based on the observations of an American World Rehabilitation Fund fellow. A description of Japan's unique culture, demography, and history provides a framework for understanding its rehabilitation programs. Both community and institutional services are discussed, along with issues and trends for rehabilitation in Japan.
