Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Daij -kan was the Department of State in Japan during the Nara and Heian periods, and briefly under the Meiji Constitution. It was consolidated in the Taih Code of 702. The Asuka Kiyomihara Code of 689 marks the initial appearance of this central administrative body composed of the three ministers-the Daij -daijin, the Sadaijin and the Udaijin. The Imperial governing structure was headed by the Daij -kan. This council and its subsidiary ministries handled all secular administrative affairs of the country, while the Jingi-kan or Department of Worship, oversaw all matters regarding Shint ritual, clergy, and shrines.show more
