Over the last two decades, there has been insufficient mutual interaction in research - and hence teaching - of Japanese law in Germany (Japanisches Recht), the English speaking world (especially the US), and Japan itself (Nihon-ho). This paper advocates building on, and combining, the respective strengths of these three bodies of scholarship: broad coverage and attention to black-letter law in Germany, innovative theoretical perspectives in the US, and the strong tradition of comparative law in Japan.
