Fanon Chronology
Previous Season La Mosquitia

Sixteen new castaways will enter the nation of Japan in the Kōchi Prefecture on the island of Shikoku, the smallest of the four main Japanese islands. Whoever can survive 39 days and each other, will win the million dollars and the title of Sole Survivor of Survivor: Japan.

Written in April 2014 to January 2015, Japan's TV run takes place in the fall of 2014. It will take the place of the canonical Season 29 (San Juan del Sur)


  • Back to Basics: Japan will have no twists, no tribe swap or dissolve. There are no hidden immunity idols.
  • Jury/Finalist Configuration: The jury and finalist configuration will be the two finalist, seven jury member format.
  • Rock Drawing Tiebreaker: Due to a deadlocked tie in the third tribal council, a rock drawing tiebreaker was utilized to eliminate a contestant. White rocks were safe. The red rock meant elimination.
  • No Merge: Due to Kagawa's atrocious challenge performances, they were devastated until only one member remained. She was then absorbed into the Ehime tribe instead of having an official merge.

Possible Returnees

Ravenna Michaels received over half of the votes for a possible return. She will appear in future season of mine. Peter Shillings and Zoe Smith were tied in second place for a possible second season.


  • If Ehime hadn't conquered Kagawa, the merged tribe would have been a yellow tribe.

Author's Notes

  • Japan will have the first medical evacuation in my fanons.
  • I uploaded the grayed out photos of the rest of the castaways to prevent potential spoilers for the finale.
