This paper examines political and economic strategy of Japan in Central Asia and tries to reveal Japan’s main interests in the region. Strategic geography and rich natural resources of Central Asian states are attracting Great Powers and neighboring regional states to increase their influence in this region. Though Japan is not engaged in “new great game” politics, it has its political and economic strategy towards the region. For realizing it, Japan is conducting bilateral and multilateral relationships with the states of the region by using Official Development Assistance (ODA) program as a tool. Being interested in political stability and security of this region, Japan in its political and economic activities assists the states of Central Asia to overcome economic difficulties and isolation as well as promotes the formation of political union for further integration of Central Asian region.
