During these two decades since the first report of an icosahedral quasicrystal, a large quantity of researches on quasicrystals has been accumulated in order to understand various aspects of the new class of material, i.e., their atomic structure, the origin of their stability, their specific physical properties and their possible applications. In this review, we reflect on the development of the researches on various aspects of quasicrystals, focusing mainly on pioneering contributions in Japan.
