the critical stage for the curriculum reform. It may be said that there are three major factors which are causing the dramatic

change in educational system in Japan, especially in the social studies curriculum. In this context geography educators are

very much concerned with the future of the curriculum reform of geography education in Japan. The first and the basic factor pushing the educational system of Japan in the direction of the dramatic reform is mainly because of the rapid changes in the social structure. People of Japan is in the beginning of feeling that the society is shifting toward the age of internationally interdependence.
