This Ministry was directly dependent upon the Ministry of Taxation, distributing the taxes collected, to maintain or create public works, bridges, roads, and harbors, the institution of dojo, the promotion of schooling, and working with the Ministry of Defense and Justice to provide relief from natural disasters.
