A cabinet-level agency in Japan responsible for national defense. Though it traces its origins at least to the 19th century, it acquired its current name in 2006. Under the 1947 constitution, the Japanese government is not permitted to wage war. Nevertheless, the Ministry of Defense operates the Japan Self-Defense Forces, which effectively act as a military.
