Scotland Captain Kelly Brown - who returns to the side after his injury - says it is going to be a more challenging match then expected.
"I think the people who think it's going to be easy have obviously not watched the Japanese games from the summer." - he said to the BBC.
Japan gave an indication of their quality play by winning the Asian Five Nations and in the summer they beat Wales although the intense heat of Osaka will be in sharp contrast to the conditions awaiting the visitors in Edinburgh.
Captain Brown also said the Japan team has lots of quality players and their game has improved a lot - they like to throw the ball about and they have very quick players.
It seems the Scottish Team needs to be on the top of their game on this Saturday to make sure they are on guard all areas.
Good luck and support them together on this Saturday at Murrayfield.
See You there!
