Live In Japan is a live album by the progressive bluegrass band Country Gentlemen, recorded in 1970 during their concert in Japan.

Just before the group was scheduled for their tour in Japan, John Duffey decided to leave, citing his fear of flying. He was replaced by Jimmy Gaudreau, but on this album the mandolin is played by Doyle Lawson, who would replace Gaudreau two years later.[1][2]
