  Social Democratic Party (Japan) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The party became the largest political party in the general election of 1947, and a government was formed by Katayama Tetsu, forming a coalition with the Democratic Party of Japan, Occupation and another minor party.
However, the party was again split in 1960 because of internal conflicts, and the breakaway group (a part of the old Right Socialist Party of Japan, their most moderate faction) created the Democratic Socialist Party (Japan), though the Japan Socialist Party was preserved.
The coalition government of Morihiro Hosokawa was formed by anti-LDP liberals (the Japan Renewal Party and the Japan New Party, the Japanese Communist Party the Clean Government Party (Former), the Democratic Socialist Party, the New Frontier Party, the New Party Sakigake, and the JSP).

For the majority of the 1960s, the LDP (and Japan) were led by Eisaku_Sato, beginning with the hosting of the Olympics in Tokyo in 1964, and ending in 1972 with Japanese neutrality in the Vietnam_War and with the beginning of the Miracle_Economy.
The choice was formally that of a party convention composed of Diet members and local LDP figures, but in most cases, they merely approved the joint decision of the most powerful party leaders.
The LDP was the most "traditionally Japanese" of the political parties because it relied on a complex network of patron-client (''oyabun-kobun'') relationships on both national and local levels.
