Abstract
The article touches upon the issue of the basic concepts of inclusive education in Japan in relation to people with disabilities, ways to eliminate the "environmental" and "attitudinal" barriers in Japanese universities, the main activities of the University Centers for supporting students with disabilities, and the types of assistance they provided. The article analyses statistical data on the number of students with disabilities in Japan and identifies the immediate tasks for the development of the system. In addition, the article describes the legislative framework of inclusive education in Japan, the teaching model for students with disabilities at the universities of Tokyo, Hiroshima and Tsukuba. Finally, the article identifies the perspective tasks for further work towards the adaptation of students with disabilities in the Japanese society, including the system of higher education.
