Management systems vary between ports, as well as between countries. Some systems are nationally centralized and others are relatively independent from government control. Between Japan and the Unites States, there are some contrasts in port management. The role of the national governments and national-wide standards concerning port management show the significant difference. Also, the port management bodies, port activities, financing systems, and planning methods are different between the two countries. The purpose of this study is to gain understanding about the difference of port management and administration system between Japan and the Unites States.
