Japan Administration

The Japanese parliament, "Kokkai", has two chambers. The upper house, "Sangi-in" has 252 members directly elected from constituencies for six-year terms (half of which are renewed every three years).
The lower house, "Shugi-in" has 500 elected members for four-year terms, partly by single-seat constituencies, partly by proportional representation. The emperor is the head of state but has negligible constitutional powers.
The appointment of the prime minister is formally entrusted to the emperor, but the appointment must be approved by the Kokkai. The prime minister holds executive power and is aided by a cabinet of ministers.
