Abstract
Even though the TA has not been institutionalized in Japan, there have been many TA and TA- like activities, in areas including food, healthcare, energy and technology strategy, since the idea of TA was introduce from the US. This paper analyzes the nature and limits of those TA and TA like activities; and the lessons for institutionalization of TA in the context of Japan are discussed, including the need for flexible framing and collaboration, the importance of appropriate distance, and the role of the Diet.
