Buraku Liberation and Human Rights Research Institute 部落解放人権研究所
The website does not deal with constitutional revision issue per se; however, the large amount of information on the website, and the Google search engine within the website allow access to many articles related to constitutional revision.
Institute for International Policy Studies
This institute offers its original revision draft in which it defines the emperor as the chief of state; moves popular sovereignty to the first chapter; renames the SDF as a security force; and clarifies foreigners’ human rights (including the right to privacy). The revision draft also establishes more detailed restrictions on separation of religion and state; establishes articles about the family and new human rights; and enforces the independence of the two Houses. It also suggests a simplified process of constitutional revision.
Japan Institute of Constitutional Law 法学館憲法研究所
This institute opposes revision of Article 9, popular election of the Prime Minister, structural revision of the Prefectural Governments, and the process of constitutional revision. It also opposes revising the current constitution without further discussion and understanding of its principles. The website is very large and contains an online database of numerous books and theses regarding constitutions. These sources are categorized so that browsers can reach a large number of books related to a specific subject; however, this institution only introduces basic information (name of the book, author, the year published, etc.) about the sources but not their content. The website also introduces a series of articles explaining constitution-related issues for junior and senior high school students, as well as a large amount of constitution-related movements, articles, events, court judgments, and movies.
