Following the increase in the number of disabled persons in Japan, legislative and procedural changes have been made, including the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the amendment to the Fundamental Law of Persons with Disabilities, and the enactment of the Anti-Disability Discrimination Law. This study considers the social participation of disabled persons from the standpoint of consciousness, which is expected to proceed via the progress of citizen's understanding of disabled persons and the removal of social barriers. This study goes on to show that there already exist significant gaps amongst disabled persons in terms of their interests for participating in various sectors and poses the question as to whether these are indeed a positive means for increasing their own social capital or for their own life. The study also claims that these gaps cannot be covered immediately solely by new legislative and procedural changes or benefits.
