2nd Building of the Central Common Government Office, the building which housed the agency

The Aircraft and Railway Accidents Investigation Commission (ARAIC) (航空・鉄道事故調査委員会 Koku-tetsudōjiko chōsa iinkai ?) was a commission belonging to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. Commission members are appointed by the transport minister to research causes of aircraft and railway accidents and to suggest improvements to prevent similar accidents in future. It was housed in the 2nd Building of the Central Common Government Office at 2-1-2 Kasumigasaeki in Chiyoda, Tokyo.[1][2]

It was founded in 1974 as Aircraft Accidents Investigation Commission, following the All Nippon Airways Flight 58 Shizukuishi aircraft accident on July 30, 1971 and the Toa Domestic Airlines Flight 64 accident.[3]

After a train accident occurred on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line on March 8, 2000 the former AAIC was restructured to ARAIC to also deal with railway accidents.

Japan Transport Safety Board began on October 1, 2008 as a merger between the Japan Marine Accident Inquiry Agency (JMAIA) and the ARAIC.[4]
