The Japanese automobile industry has been under much scrutiny for awhile now. Questions are being asked whether the Japanese industries will remain on top or are American car companies in good enough shape to recapture the title. The answers seem to vary amongst many analysts. Japan has overcome many obstacles to become the leader in the auto world. Lean production, which has a goal of perfection, has been one of the main reasons why Japan has become so efficient. Japanese auto industries have learned the technique to produce cost efficient, high quality cars. While the companies are struggling a little now in the 90s, Japan should not be forgotten by other nations. My paper addresses the Japanese automobile industry, from it rise during the 80s to the decline ·in the 90s.
