It is argued that despite associating Japan with high technology, most Western scientists know little about computer science in Japan. Many factors contribute to this phenomenon, including language and cultural differences, a shortage of readily available information, and a degree of technical chauvinism. On the basis of observations made during sabbaticals in Japan, the authors provide an informal portrait of computer science in Japanese universities in the hope that enhanced awareness and increased interaction will result. They look specifically at departmental structure, faculty career paths, the student population, and research activity.<>
