As one of original member countries of the International Labour Organization (ILO), Japan and the ILO have long-standing relationship dating back to 1919. Soon after its creation, ILO opened a branch office in Tokyo in November 1923. Although the office had been closed during the withdrawal of Japan from the ILO for the period of 1940-51, it has been reestablished soon after country's readmission to the organization.

Decent work is actively promoted by tripartite constituents in Japan to implement the Asian Decent Work Decade (2006-2015), launched by 14th Asian Regional Meeting held in Busan in 2006. Since 2007, activity plans towards realization of decent work in Japan have been jointly prepared by Japanese government, employer and worker members of the ILO Governing Body, ILO Office in Japan and the ILO Association of Japan, Inc., non-profit organization working to disseminate ILO values and principles in the country. ILO Office in Japan has developed the Concept Note for Decent Work Country Programme in Japan (2007-09) as framework of the ILO activities in the country.
