Contemporary Japanese architecture has achieved great success and has been widely accepted by the whole architectural field. What is the driving force for the contemporary Japanese architectural creation is worth of thinking carefully about. In this study, some famous Japanese architects, including Toyo Ito, Tadao Ando, Arata Isozaki, Kengo Kuma, Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa and their architectural studiess are analyzed and studied from the angle of nationality. These architects keep up with the step of the world architecture and always pursuit the aesthetical taste of nationality. They proposed some special architectural theories that profoundly reflect the nationality of Japanese and make great influence on the architectural forms, architectural space and architectural aesthetics of Contemporary Japanese architecture. In the architectural form, they pursuit the simplicity, pureness, lightness and finesses; in the architectural space and behavior, they pursuit the shadow of the ma space and nature existence; in the architectural aesthetics, they pursuit the beauty of animism, dreariness and substance sadness. Through conjoint analysis of the architectural examples and the theory of nationality, this study proposed that the contemporary Japanese architectural creation is directly derived from the profound traditional culture and firm nationality and nationality is the cornerstone of the Japanese architecture and always promotes the progress of the Japanese architecture.
