Abstract: "Investor Relations" has become one of the most fashionable phrases among Japanese companies in recent years, particularly as a result of the rising impact of foreign investors in Japan. An English-language website may be one of the most effective measures for providing corporate information to a non-Japanese audience, but the attitude of Japanese companies on this point is mixed. Based on a questionnaire survey and a trend analysis, this study identifies a number of factors underlying Japanese attitudes. It also constructs a regression model, whereby the provision of English-language information has a positive effect on foreign investment is observed.
