Japan and South Korea have been influenced by the “IT revolution” that started in the late 90s and have promoted e-Government since the early 2000s. In Japan, there were the “Basic Act on the Formation of an Advanced Information and Telecommunications Network Society” and the “Online Procedure of Administrative Procedure.” While in Korea, the “e-Government Act” was enacted and the e-Government was promoted in earnest. However 20 years later, the gap between e-Government in Korea and Japan has widened. In this paper, we compare the background of the early stage of e-Government in both countries and found out that the reason why the e-Government in Japan became ineffective is that the Act does not contain the basic elements for e-Government. They are the three parts of the political background, leadership, organization and budget.
