  Creative industries have grown in prominence over the years. We refined our initial 2003 mapping document of Japan’s creative industries by drawing on the most recent 12th revision of the Japan Standard Industrial Classification of 2007. Based on the new mapping, our analysis of official data revealed domestic trends as well as distinctive creative-industry profiles of 12 ordinance-designated cities. The results offer rich implications for creative city policy in the future.
