Portrait of Ito Hirobumi
Portrait of Katsura Tarō
Portrait of Eisaku Satō
Portait of Shinzō Abe
  • Top left: Ito Hirobumi became the first Prime Minister of Japan in 1885.
  • Top right: Katsura Tarō was the longest serving Prime Minister and held the office for three different occasions.
  • Bottom left: Eisaku Satō was the longest uninterrupted serving Prime Minister, holding office from 1964 to 1972.
  • Bottom right: Shinzō Abe, the incumbent officeholder, holding office from 2006 to 2007 and again since 2012.

This is a list of Prime Ministers of Japan, including those of the Empire of Japan, from when the first Japanese prime minister (in the modern sense), Itō Hirobumi, took office in 1885, until the present day. The office is currently held by Shinzō Abe. Those Prime Ministers under the Meiji Constitution had a mandate from the Emperor. The "electoral mandates" shown are for the lower house of the Imperial Diet that was not constitutionally guaranteed to have any influence on the appointment of the Prime Minister.

Daijō-daijin[edit]

The office of Daijō-daijin (太政大臣, Chancellor of the Realm of Japan) was the equivalent of what would become the office of Prime Minister. It was an ancient role that had been discontinued in the 18th century and was briefly revived under the Meiji constitution.

The office of Daijō-daijin was abolished in December 1885 with the appointment of Itō Hirobumi in the new position of Prime Minister.
