Search Engines
Using Google and  other web search engines can be very useful for tracking down information bout Japanese law, in English or in Japanese.  When using Japanese text terms in your search, it's a good idea to specify that you're looking for Japanese language materials.  Otherwise, your results may include many unrelated materials form other East Asian languages.

For Japanese language searching, try for example: the "Goo" search engine at: http://www.goo.ne.jp/.  Google also works for Japanese searches when configured properly (see the Google Preferences page at: http://www.google.com/preferences) .

    "With the closing of the Japan Documentation Center (JDC) on March 31, 2000, the JDC database will not be updated."   
    (From their web page:
    "The Japan Documentation Center was established in 1992 [by the Library of Congress] to collect and disseminate Japanese public policy information. The project successfully developed an information management system and a database of over 5,000 items that includes source materials in fields such as economics, commerce and industry, law, politics, the environment, and social conditions. The collection will be serviced by the Japanese Section staff. The JDC collected difficult-to-obtain unpublished literature, often referred to as "grey literature." The collection included policy studies and reports, white papers and annual reports, draft legislation, think-tank reports, and public opinion polls. The bulk of materials were issued between 1993 and 1999, and about 95% are in Japanese. Each record in the bibliographic database has a detailed English abstract, and the web index file allows full text searching. Researchers can identify useful materials and request copies from the Asian Division.")
