Culture is a strong determinant of people's behaviour. The concept of culture employed in this paper embraces its traditional meaning as an underlining framework which guides an individuals personal interaction, thinking, values and behaviour.

It is the researcher's intention to outline a comprehensive study of the concept of national culture in Japan and its influence on Japanese organisations.

Five interviews were conducted for the purpose of this dissertation. Each interviewee contributed his/her own opinions and experiences of Japanese management and the cultural influences of Japan in their companies.

The research continues on the analysis of the interviews conducted with the conclusion that elements of national culture are infact repressing growth and prosperity for Japan but still remain intact in Japanese organisations.
