Due to language and cultural barriers, clinical aphasiologists in English speaking countries have had few opportunities to learn about services for people with aphasia in Japan. This paper will review the development of aphasia services in Japan over the last 30 years. Japanese aphasia programs have received inspiration from programs developed in other parts of the world. In addition, several innovative aphasia programs have been created that warrant attention. Given the potential for future healthcare reform and service delivery changes, especially given the new administration in Washington D.C, we may receive timely inspiration from Japanese aphasiologists.
