Made In Japan is the third album by Japanese rock band Flower Travellin' Band, released in 1972. After meeting Lighthouse at the Expo '70 festival in Osaka, Flower Travellin' Band were invited to visit Canada. While there, the group recorded Made in Japan with Lighthouse keyboardist Paul Hoffert helping produce. Vocalist Joe Yamanaka later stated that the process was very easy, with everything flowing well.
Problem was, Hoffert's musical vision clashed directly against FTB's defining heavy rock foundations, and although the band's powerful manager, Yuya Utchida, came away happier with the finished product than the bandmembers themselves, the album's songs still made for a less consistent, and certainly less potent collection than those of its predecessor.
Flower Travellin' Band (フラワー・トラベリン・バンド Furawā Toraberin Bando) were a Japanese rock band that was formed in 1967. They were connected to Japan's counterculture movement and noted for their mixture of early heavy metal with psychedelic and progressive rock. They received wide acclaim from critics but failed to achieve commercial success and separated in 1973 to pursue individual careers. The band reunited in late 2007, but permanently disbanded after the 2011 death of vocalist Joe Yamanaka.

Flower Travellin' Band's Made in Japan was the band's third album in three years and also the band's last release with entirely original material until the group's reunion record thirty-six years later. The title is somewhat confusing since the record was recorded in Canada with Lighthouse keyboardist Paul Hoffert as producer and drummer Paul Devon replacing the original drummer on a few tracks because of his tuberculosis illness. The group split up just one year later as the different band members wanted to try out other projects. The group released a strange last album called Make Up, consisting of a few final studio recordings and live tracks in an awkward combination. The band only reunited three and a half decades later, released a final album and fell apart when the singer died of lung cancer. If the band had stayed together, it could have become one of the greatest psychedelic rock bands in the world.
