With analyzing the process of the development of the technology and engineering in Japan after world War the II we could conclude as following ;
(1) By the development of the Information technology, that is one of the important symbols of the highly developed technology in Japan, the support of the Government has played an important role. By this supporting policy Japanese information industry has developed mainly in 'hardware technology' and in contrary weak in 'software' technology. This characteristic is not only of information technology but common in other technologies in Japan. The structure of technology-developing in Japan is that concentrating investigation in the important part of the research with basing the cheap and overconvergencing labor. This structure gives not hopeful perspective in Japanese future, it would be need for more development that the structure of research and developpment should be changed.
The developpment of the computer technology has changed the ability
of tool-machine technology, but with the development of the machine-technology itself.
It is said that the Information and Data would flow fluently and freely in the information society, but it is not true. In Japan the 'TDF' is not free, but has directions and controlled.
(2) By the chemical technology the directions of the development in this field has been decided by the 'GHQ' and the relationship between Japan and the United States. This development has strongly contributed to the prosperity. But the structure of the development in this field was made introducing many technologies from the USA and neglcting the considering the influences of the industrial behavior to the circumstances, that is neglecting the technology which should deal with the outcoming substances from the factories. That would cost highly. So the enviromental problems in Japan have been made by Japanese high developing industry itself. To the technology itself we can not find out the resolution, but in the structure of developing industry and social structure of technology.
(3) Gibing little money to the military affairs has contributed to the high prosperity of japanese industries. Less
