Japan have been regular participants in the FIFA Confederations Cup down the years: 2013 marks their fifth appearance at the tournament and a fourth from the last five editions. 
The reigning Asian champions, the Blue Samurai’s best showing in the tournament arrived in 2001 when, as hosts, they got as far as the final before losing 1-0 to France. 
Coached by Italian Alberto Zaccheroni, Japan will use the tournament as a scouting mission ahead of returning for the FIFA World Cup in a year’s time.
