About Shipping Disputes in Japan

Japanese waters often cause territory disputes, and its insularity certainly contributes to Japanese involvement in international shipping matters. Since the shipping industry operates on a transnational scale, it is likely the parties involved may originate from different countries and - most crucially - speak different languages. Effective communication between disputing parties and the use of interpreters and translators is essential to provide solutions to such pressing problems. Litigation and arbitration proceedings are often the only means to a solution.
