Don't the title and the question body refer to different things? –  Louis Rhys Jan 28 '13 at 9:08

After the Meiji-Restoration, Christianity, and all religions were legalized, and according to the article I read, were "promulgated."

In 1890, after the Restoration, the wealthiest men (about 1% of the population), were allowed to vote for parliament. By 1925, all men were allowed.
