Abstract:     
This year, Japan became the last G7 industrialized nation to sign the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. In order for the Convention to provide relief to parents in Japan, this Article suggests modifications to Japan's family laws and Civil Code, including the introduction of joint custody, visitation, and the best interests of the child standard. These developments would track those in American custody law -- analyzed in this Article -- that resulted in the modern framework on custody in the United States.
