Details Japan and Italy have different inclusive education systems. In Japan, education for students with disabilities is carried out in various forms, including in special classes, in special schools, and in resource rooms. Students with and without disabilities sometimes contact in student exchanges meetings. In contrast, Italian education for students with disabilities is carried out only in regular classes. Students with or without disabilities have contact in daily school life. The purpose of this study is to compare teachers' views on inclusive education system in Japan and Italy to clarify the differences between them.
