Issues with Japan’s Agricultural Subsidies, Which Are Resistant to New Situations: Focusing on the Case Study of Morimoto District, Kyotango City, in the Northern Area of Kyoto Prefecture
This chapter sets out the issues faced by Japanese agriculture and farming villages, as well as the features of the agricultural policies and agricultural subsidy schemes which aim to tackle these issues. It has been made clear that from the 1990s, the preservation of the functions of farming communities through the maintenance of farmland and agriculture has been positioned as the integral policy aim, and that agricultural subsidy schemes have been introduced across the entire process of agricultural production activity in order to counter the ageing of the agricultural population and raise the international competitiveness of agricultural produce. However, support through such subsidy schemes has not yielded results.
