The Lower House Plenary session confirmed it will allow both male and female members to participate in meetings in kariyushi shirts and without a jacket during the Cool Business period in the summer. The decision was made during the board meeting on June 7. The dress code will be applied in general meetings from June 12.

The wearing of kariyushi shirts has been allowed during the Cool Business campaign before, however jackets were still required in the general meetings. A few Diet members participating in the general meeting wore kariyushi shirts under jackets on the Day of Kariyushi Shirts on June 1.
