This article describes the interests of the Japanese state in the Central Asian region and its economic, political and social relations with the countries of the region. Japan's foreign policy and its specific doctrinal aspects are mentioned separately. Among them is the adoption of a foreign policy doctrine called "Eurasian diplomacy", which provides for the implementation of Japan's foreign policy in Central Asia. The Japanese government will also discuss the “Ipak yo’li” Action Plan, which envisages the development of broad political ties, multilateral economic cooperation and assistance in the transition to a market economy. Japan is implementing various assistance projects to Central Asian countries through the International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Foreign Economic Cooperation Fund (OECF). The main reason for this is that the geopolitical situation of the states is very important in terms of ensuring stability in the Asian region. Due to the global instability in the energy market, Japan is trying to actively participate in the development of Central Asian energy resources. In addition, security and stability issues that Japan's foreign policy pays special attention to, especially the Afghan problem in Central Asia.
