Japan’s constitution is very rights rich and has a strong American influence,especially after World War II. You will even see that Japan has a very similarstructure and rights to its judiciary as the U.S. does. Here are a few inalienablerights that the Japanese people are granted with and in normative theory terms,are a natural born right to have. Article 19. Freedom of thought and conscienceshall not be violated. Article 21. Freedom of assembly and association as well asspeech, press and all other forms of expression are guaranteed. No censorshipshall be maintained, nor shall the secrecy of any means of communication beviolated. Article 25. All people shall have the right to maintain the minimumstandards of wholesome and cultured living. In all spheres of life, the State shalluse its endeavors for the promotion and extension of social welfare and security,and of public health. Article 20. Freedom of religion is guaranteed to all. Noreligious organization shall receive any privileges from the State, nor exerciseany political authority. No person shall be compelled to take part in any religiousact, celebration, rite or practice. The State and its organs shall refrain fromreligious education or any other religious activity. Article 27. All people shall havethe right and the obligation to work. Standards for wages, hours, rest and otherworking conditions shall be fixed by law.Children shall not be exploited. Can yousee a pattern? Do you recognize any rights that you have as a U.S. citizen? TheJapanese do have democratic structure as does the U.S. You can see in article15 that explains that the people of Japan have an inalienable right to choose theirpublic officials. Article 15. The people have the inalienable right to choose theirpublic officials and to dismiss them. All public officials are servants of the whole
community and not of any group thereof. Universal adult suffrage is guaranteedwith regard to the election of public officials. In all elections, secrecy of the ballotshall not be violated. A voter shall not be answerable, publicly or privately, for thechoice he has made.As you read a few of Japan’s constitution articles I have picked out, you will see asimilar structure to that of the United States constitution regarding the judiciary.
