Elections for the Japanese House of Councillors were held in Japan in 1995.
Because of the circumstances of its creation, the opposition party New Frontier Party held seats in the House of Councillors without having won them in the prior election. Many of them were former members of the LDP.
This election made history that the New Frontier Party replaced the Japanese Socialist Party, which held the largest opposition party for 38 years, and entered coalition with the Liberal Democratic Party. The Socialists lost many seats in this election.
