The Jackson 5 in Japan, also known as In Japan!, is the first live album released by the Jackson 5, culled from a live concert held in Japan in 1973. It was released in the UK in 1986 as Michael Jackson with the Jackson 5 Live; Motown did not release the album in the United States until a limited-edition version was released in 2004, via specialty reissue label Hip-O Select. A quadrophonic mix was released in Japan in 1975, marking an early release of the band's material in surround sound. The album sold over a million copies worldwide.

By 1973, the Jackson 5 were bigger worldwide than they were in America, selling millions of records and giving performances at sold-out concerts. This set features the group performing many of their hit records, as well as 3 solo hits each from member Michael Jackson and 2 from another member, Jermaine Jackson. Michael's voice was changing, struggling to hit the higher notes to songs that he once could sing the years prior. Either the key of the song was changed so Michael would not strain, or he just avoided the higher notes. Early stages of Michael's vocal change can be heard on the second disc of the band's Live at the Forum album (2010).
