The Shinshinto, or New Frontier Party, was founded in 1994 by former prime minister Kaifu Toshiki, and immediately became one of the members of the ruling anti-LDP coalition led by Hosokawa Morihiro. The party helped the government, led by the New Japan Party and the Japan Renewal Party, control the government until it collapsed in 1996. In 1996, former coalition leader Hata Tsutomu took over.
This party was basically on the left-wing and a traditional liberal party as well as a social-democratic party. The party, as said above, is now defunct. Most of its former members had joined the Liberal Party (1998), which in turn joined the Democratic Party.
