Although there have been relatively few works on Japanese politics in Chinese academia, some good works have been done with the use of political science theories and methods, such as pluralism, structural-functionalism, neo-institutionalism, political ecology analysis, etc. Japanese academia regards the study of politics as an independent discipline to understand and explain political institutions. After the Second World War, Japanese politics became the subject of critical studies, which went through several stages, such as critical political science, fengtu political science, citizen political science, pluralistic politics, econometrical analysis, etc. In order to move the study of Japanese politics forward, one future research direction is to expound the different stages of political development of East Asian countries with the methods of comparative politics, and conduct objective and accurate analysis of specific political systems and political phenomena through particular political science theories and methods.
