This paper describes the elements and factors surrounding and restricting cataloging and metadata (C&M) education in Japan and also tries to show the possible future direction of that education. First, the elements/factors restricting C&M education are articulated into (a) those in catalogs themselves and cataloging practice, and (b) those in LIS education in Japanese universities. Second, recent discussions related to C & M education in US are reviewed. Finally, proper changes in contents of C&M education are proposed: for instance, (a) incorporating the viewpoint of the 'design' of catalogs and metadata, (b) re-conceptualizing catalogs in the scope of the whole metadata and also information organization. Also, some ways to develop C&M education under the current restriction are showed.
