This book reveals the inside story of the kanryo, the officials who comprise the real, though hidden, government of Japan. Through their powers to regulate the economy, and their close ties to industrialists and politicians, these elite bureaucrats effectively help to keep Japan's domestic markets closed. Ikuta is a leading journalist covering the Kasumigaseki bureaucrats. His articles have appeared in prominent Japanese magazines.
