The International Linear Collider (ILC) is an electron-positron collider with 250 GeV center-of-mass energy designed to study Higgs couplings with a much higher precision than can be achieved at hadron collider experiments. This will make it an excellent tool to probe for physics beyond the Standard Model. KEK proposed that the Japanese government host this new machine in Japan as an international project, and the proposal has been strongly supported by ICFA. The Japanese government recently released its statement about the ILC, and the project’s future direction is becoming clearer. In this colloquium, the status and possible future of the ILC in Japan will be presented.
