The domestic production by largest nine spinning companies, which are the object of this paper, reached its peak on the beginning of 1970s like whole textile production in Japan. Large spinning companies began overseas production earlier than the other industries in Japan and these companies had established some overseas leading factories mainly in Latin America before the beginning of 1970s. For thirty years after that, Japanese textile industry declined remarkably in consequence of the competition with foreign countries. The locational change of above-mentioned large spinning companies in this period can be classified into some groups. Three companies, Toyobo, Kanebo and Yunichika, which had most factories on 1970, decrease their factories and workers remarkably before the end of 1990s As a result, factory agglomeration area of each company has become indistinct and isolated large factories have relatively gained increasing importance. ...
