Hi all, I've been looking for some competent rules of the precedence in Japanese orders. I guess it goes like this: rising sun, sacred treasure and than golden kite, however on some old photos the soldiers start their bars with the kite having the other as well. So maybe there is a rule of a class. Many thanks for explanation.

When the classes of all three orders are equal

Golden Kite/Rising Sun/Sacred Treasure

 

4th kite/4th sun/4th treasure

If not thеn by (class) seniority. 

For example combination

6th class kite

5th class rising sun 

4th sacred treasure 

should be wear like this 

Sacred treasure/Rising sun/Golden Kite

 

6th sun/7th kite/7-8th treasure
