Abstract: This paper looks into three aspects of food security in Japan from the 1940s to the present. It starts with the food shortage during the immediate post-war period, then moves on to the issue of a dramatically declining food self-sufficiency ratio and the safety of imported food, and finally concludes with the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake that led to anxieties about radioactive contamination of domestically-produced food.
