This is the website of an official congressional association composed of more than 300 Diet members favoring constitutional revision. It provides the association's mission statement and membership, and a comparative history of the constitutions of Japan and Germany. The website claims that Germany's constitution was created by its own citizens, while the constitution of Japan was imposed by the United States. The dramatic improvement in the economy and welfare in the postwar decades helped Japan occupy an honorable position in the international community, but in order for Japan to make a further contribution to the world, it must be concerned about the preservation of world peace. They claim that the constitution (especially Article 9, clause 2) should be revised in order to adapt to new challenges and situations.
