It has 592 members as of 25 August 2007, when it was called Japan Greens (みどりのテーブル Midori no Tēburu?, "green table"). After the electoral success of Green activist Ryuhei Kawada in the 2007 House of Councillors election, the local green political network Rainbow and Greens has reportedly decided to dissolve itself and merge with the Japan Greens in December 2007. The two precedent organizations dissolved themselves and relaunched as Greens Japan, a political organization in late 2008, under its former Japanese name, Midori no Mirai (みどりの未来 - "green future").
On the 22 of November, 2010 Kazumi Inamura became the first popularly elected Greens Japan Mayor, in the city of Amagasaki as well as the first popularly elected female mayor of the city with 54% of the vote.
On 28 July 2012, the party was officially re-established under its new name by local assembly members and civic groups to run in the Upper House election to reduce and terminate Japan's nuclear power generation and opposition to the nation's entry into the Trans-Pacific Partnership, both eyed by Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda of the Democratic Party of Japan.
