Meiji Period: 1868 – 1912
Political Reforms and First Constitution Of Japan
The Meiji period is named after Emperor Meiji who reigned from 1868 to 1912. Meiji-jidai (Meiji preiod) translates to "Period of Enlightened Rule". It marks the beginning of many
political, social, and military reforms in Japan. Emperor Meiji moved the capital from Kyoto to Tokyo, renaming Edo to Tokyo (Eastern Capital). The general aims of the Meiji government were summarized in the Five Charter Oath of 1868:
1. Establishment of deliberative assemblies
2. Involvement of all classes in carrying out state affairs
3. The revocation of sumptuary laws and class restrictions on employment
4. Replacement of "evil customs" with the "just laws of nature"
5. An international search for knowledge to strengthen the foundations of imperial rule.
To implement the Charter Oaths the Constitution of the Empire of Japan was finalized in 1889.It contained provisions paving the way toward a new democratic style of government. The constitution provided for new legislative bodies including the Imperial Diet, the House of Peers, and an independent cabinet directly under the Emperor. It also contained provisions which limited office tenure to four years, allowed for public voting, and reformed the rank system for the noble and common classes. Land reform laws forced daimyo to forfeit their land holdings to the Emperor and private land ownership was legalized. Despite the changes, the Emperor still maintained sovereignty based on the divine ancestry of the Imperial line.
