Japan imported a wide range of products, although energy sources, raw materials, and food were the major items.The heavy dependency on raw materials that characterized Japan until the mid-1980s reflected both their absence in Japan and the process of import substitution industrialization, in which Japan favored domestic industries over imports. The production of the Japanese clothing manufacturers and spinning companies have shifted to overseas sites where they get lower manufacturing costs, and the percentage of overseas production is increasing year by year. Consequently, the domestic production volume of apparel materials such as leather, yarns, and textiles has been declining for the past years, leading to a falling trend in the volume of imports. Denim fabric , though produced in decent quantities in Japan, is also imported from some countries as Japan misses certain kind of products which are not made in their country. Of course, Japan is a huge buyer of denim jeans and apparel , but that shall be subject of another report.
