The present status of activities of research and application of holography in Japan is reviewed. The most active field is metrology, and many applications in automobile, aircraft, electronic industries as well as basic researches are found. Information processing and optical memory are still in laboratory level, and suitable applications are looked for. Optical elements are promising, and applications in POS scanning systems are already in practical use. Applications in 3-D image display are spreading among the public, and applications for medical purpose have started. Acoustical holography is applied in mechanical engineering, and electron holography becomes a very attractive tool for experimental physics.
