We aim to discuss developments and perspectives in DDI implementation projects at Social Science Japan Data Archive (SSJDA). Our implementation is twofold. First, we have conducted Nesstar system operation since 2012. While the Nesstar system has been widely operated, there still remains enough room for its implementation in Japan.  Our recent developments will be discussed with the detailed explanation focused on the published datasets. Our second implementation is the Easy DDI Organizer (EDO), a metadata editing and management and survey planning software development project. The main features will be explained such as metadata-editing based both of the DDI-L and DDI-C, the file import and the export functions, and its open source. Given these developments and experiences, the perspectives for further development will be discussed.
