Survivor: Japan is the twenty-third season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, which began on April 8, 2015, and ended with a live reunion on May 2, 2015.

It ended with Rhys R. defeating Cam N. and Owen A. at the Final Tribal Council in a 5-2-2 vote. At the Reunion, Cam won Fan Favorite.

Production

This season features eighteen castaways, divided into three tribes of six. The tribes for this season are named after places in Japan. The tribes are Nagoya, wearing dark green, Okazaki, in black, and Tahara, with dark red. The insignias are circle patterns in the respective tribe color. On Day 9, the tribes merged into Gamagori, wearing gold.

44 people applied, 26 were cut from the casting, and the other 18 went on to become the castaways competing in the game. The full cast of 18 including tribal designations were revealed on March 31, 2015.

Twists

  • Occultus Island: Returning from the titular Occultus Island season. In a new twist to Redemption Island, voted out players are sent to Occultus Island to compete to get back in the game. When five people are on Occultus Island, they compete in a condensed version of the post-merge Survivor game, with individual challenges and Tribal Councils. If you are voted out of an Occultus Island Tribal, you are out of the game permanently. At a set point in the game, a certain amount of people remaining on Occultus Island return to the game after a final battle for another chance to become the Sole Survivor.
  • Three-Tribe Format: This season the castaways were once again divided into three tribes instead of the usual two. It is the sixth season to have more than two tribes after All-Stars, Seychelles, Cursed Hand, Reclamation, and the previous season, New Zealand.
  • Tribe Switch: On Day 6, the Nagoya, Okazaki and Tahara tribes underwent a tribe switch, mixing up the tribes. The Okazaki tribe was dismantled in this switch, leaving only Nagoya and Tahara.
  • Double Tribal Council: On Day 4, two tribes went to Tribal Council. Due to the three-tribe format, the challenge was still for tribal immunity, but with only one tribe winning. Then, on Day 13, One Day Tribes was initiated.
  • One Day Tribes: On Day 13, the eight remaining castaways were divided back into two tribes, just for a Double Tribal Council that day, before reverting back to a normal merged tribe. Owen picked one person to join him on his tribe. He chose Rhys.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: There was one hidden idol placed in each tribe camp, which could be found by correctly guessing the answer to the clues sent daily to the two immune tribes. There was also an extra hidden idol in the post-merge camp, which was found and played early, so replaced with a fifth idol.
