Improvised Music from Japan is a website and record label.

The website was originally known as Japanese Free Improvisers. As its name suggests, it concentrates on Japanese and Japan-based improvisers, particularly free improvisers.

In December 2001, a compilation box-set, also called Improvised Music from Japan, was released to mark the fifth anniversary of the website.

The label has since released a number of other records featuring similar artists:
