Abstract : A major difficulty faced by visitors to Japan, and those trying to contact Japanese scientists, is the lack of a comprehensive listing of investigators and laboratories. An attempt to satisfy this need was begun earlier with two predecessor volumes, Japanese Research Institutes Funded by the Ministry of Education, and Japanese Research Institutes Funded by Ministries Other Than Education, compiled by seikoh Sakiyama, which were published as ONR Tokyo Scientific Monographs M2 and M4 (a similar listing of research institutes funded by the Ministry of Education was also published by the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science). Copies of those volumes, ONRT M2 and ONRT M4, are still available from this office. The present volume completes the series and lists research institutes funded by private corporations. In this volume, the name, address, telephone number, specialty field, and the size and scope of activity of 100 research laboratories as well as the parent companies are given. The statistical information on each research laboratory and its parent company is followed by a narrative description of the laboratory's R&D activities.
