Japan is an island country located in far eastern Asia. The Assassins in Osaka control the yakuza group the Onmoraki-Gumi.


By 1257, knowledge of the country had reached the western world. Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad suggested spreading rumors that his Apple of Eden had been transported to Japan or Cyprus to draw away the Templars from looking for it beneath Masyaf.[1]

After several defeats by the Assassins in Europe during the early 16th century, the Templars led by Francis Xavier sought to spread their influence in Japan. Despite the difficulties posed by the the island's warring states, they recruited a few Japanese sympathizers like Mochizuki Chiyome. The Assassins responded by recruiting rival ninjas like Hattori Hanzō.[2]

Abstergo Industries gave J. Robert Oppenheimer authorization to test the atomic bomb, making them directly responsible for the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that ended World War II.[3]

Whaling in Japan is a controversial issue; Susan Drayton, an Assassin and environmentalist, originally intended to use the Altaïr II to fight Japanese whalers.[4]
