The emergence of COVID-19 pandemic has caused severe damage to many aspects of lives and its management has equally brought about different approach where many have witnessed lockdowns, state of emergencies, and travel restrictions. These measures in their own spectrum have achieved many results identified as successful or otherwise. To many, being liberal on the approach to managing the pandemic is key to ensuring continue flow of resources to promote economic sustainability. Others also have the view that, stringent measures ensure safety and healthy population which are essential to restarting economic structuring in postpandemic. However, adopting flexible but principled approach may be important in the midst of many approaches. This chapter looks at the governance system of Japan from the perspective of state emergency system and its application during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is discussed with some local context while placing it in other jurisdictional contexts to enhance the understanding of adaptive governance.
