Summary:<title>Summary</title> <p>The trends of international students and international student policy in Japanese higher education are presented by the quantitative data on the inflow and outflow of international students in Japan. Statistics indicate that Japanese universities cannot necessarily take suitable measures to cope with the recent trend of international student mobility in comparison to other Asian countries. The following chapter addresses the history of international student policy in Japan esp. the “Project on welcoming 100,000 students from overseas” in 1983 and the “Global 30” project in 2008. A series of projects for Global Human Resource Development are promoted at the initiatives of the Japanese Business Foundation and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The final chapter examines the problems of higher education policy in Japan in comparison to China, Korea and Singapore when the international mobility of Asian students rapidly rises in the last decade and China becomes the most important country in global market of international higher education.</p>
