In the ancient Japanese government, Nairan (内覧) was the inspection of documents submitted to the Tennō (Emperor), or the position held by those who performed the inspection.[1]

The Tennō usually gave a Nairan no Senji (内覧の宣旨), or an Imperial edict of inspection, to the regent, also known as Sessho or Kampaku.
