Japan are an Asian nation that appear in the Pro Evolution Soccer series. They were the first nation to be licensed, in PES 2.

Since 2002 (PES 3), the PES games have been the only ones to feature the licensed Japanese team, as the Japanese Football Association had signed an exclusive deal with Konami that year. Outside the PES series, the only games to feature the licensed Japanese team are the official FIFA World Cup games made by EA Sports, and Sega's Virtua Striker 4.

Due to being licensed (except for the Western versions of PES 2014 and 2015) and PES 2017, all players featured in the squad have a Preset Face.
