The Japan national baseball team is a national team of Japan and is controlled by the Baseball Federation of Japan. It represents the nation in senior-level men's international competition. The team is a member of the BFA.

Japan is one of the few countries to employ an amateur and professional version of its national team; the amateur squad competes in most events, while the pros are only used for events such as the Olympics and World Baseball Classic. Japan won three of the first five World Baseball Classics, one of the first two Premier 12 and a Gold in the 2020 Olympics. Japan won the 2023 World Baseball Classic, defeating the USA.
