Japan was a country in Asia before the Great War.




  • In 2241, some descendants of the Yakuza, the pre-War Japanese mafia, inhabit the area around New Reno. They carry short swords known as wakizashi.
  • In 2277, Toshiro Kago, a samurai is found aboard Mothership Zeta by the Lone Wanderer after being abducted by aliens.
  • Weapons of Japanese ancestry such as katanas can be found in the Mojave Wasteland.
  • Some robots seen in the Commonwealth speak Japanese. In 2282, Takahashi, a Protectron, has been set up to work at Power Noodles. The only thing he can say is "Nan-ni shimasu-ka?" (なんにしますか?) or "What will you have?" The mayor notes that this could be due to malfunction. The companion Curie will ask Takahashi about the menu. When he responds with his usual greeting, she will introduce herself to him in Japanese, saying "Watashi wa Curie desu" (私はキュリーです) which means "I am Curie."



Japan is mentioned in Fallout 2, Fallout 3 and its add-on Mothership Zeta, the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 4, Fallout 76 and the update Wild Appalachia.
