The new, state-of-the-art Japan International Dispute Resolution Centre (JIDRC), officially launched in October 2020. Following the opening of the JIDRC Osaka two years ago, the launch of their new Tokyo facilities highlights Japan’s continued ambitions to become a leading seat for international arbitration. David Gilmore, Craig Shepherd and John Ribeiro from our international arbitration practice in Japan discuss the key features of the new facility, the Japanese government’s ongoing endeavours to promote Japan’s popularity as a seat for international arbitration and some potential challenges it may face as it seeks to ‘unseat’ some of its other, perhaps more popular, international competitors.
