Japan is the largest physical music market in the world, and the second largest overall music market. In 2014, 37/50 of the best selling albums in the world and 49/50 of the best selling singles were dominated by Japanese artists. J-pop and J-rock are well-known and popular musical genres since the 1990s and they continue to dominate the musical mainstream of Japan. 

J-pop has been immensely influential in many other music styles, and hence those of neighboring regions, where the style has been copied by neighboring Asian regions, who have also borrowed the name to form their own musical identities. Beyond this, however, the music of Japan is rich and varied.

Japan debuted in the FSC in October 2009, and where it achieved its highest place of 3rd with "Umareyuku Monotachi" by Do As Infinity. In April, May and June of 2010 it recorded three top 10 finishes with songs "Koi no Mahou", "Monster", and "What Do You Want To Do". After receiving its worst result of 26th in February 2011, Japan took a hiatus from FSC. 5 years later in August 2015, however, Japan returned to the contest with its second best result, finishing 4th with 98 points for SEKAI NO OWARI's "Dragon Night". In December 2015, Japan recorded it's best ever result, with Superfly's "Beautiful" finishing in second place with 106 points.
