The CISG-Japan Database <English> is, at least for the moment, a digested translation of the CISG-Japan Database <Japanese>. Due to this origin, some features available in the Japanese version are not available here. If you and your browser read Japanese, please use the Japanese page.

You can use this database now: as a collection of links to materials related to the CISG.

You will be able to use it in the future: not only as a collection of links, but also as a database of Japanese cases & arbitral awards on CISG. English abstracts will be provided.
