Tax breaks / incentives
As explained above, Japan doesn’t have any national tax incentives for film or TV. But there are various forms of support/subsidies from local film commissions, details of which can be found at the Japan Film Commission (JFC). These cover areas as such location scouting (usually for film and TV drama), accommodation and transportation. The JFC is linked to around 70 regional film commissions as well as film and video industry organisations.
