Abstract: With respect to the final disposal of high-level radioactive waste in Japan, Designated Radioactive Waste Final Disposal Law was enacted in 2000. This law stipulated the disposal depth shall be deeper than 300 meters. However, the location of the final disposal of high-level radioactive waste has not yet been selected in Japan till the present day. The Japanese government is trying to earn public understanding in selecting the final disposal location, and in doing so, the government must give a reasonable explanation on the safety of the final disposal. The depth of final disposal is an important element in gaining public understanding. In this paper, we are analyzing the process of policy formation up until the finalization of the disposal depth stipulated in the law in chronological order, and conclude that the depth of deeper than 300 meters does not necessarily guarantee the safety of the disposal site in Japan.
