The Japan Open began in 1973 and was known as the Tokyo Outdoor Grand Prix which was part of the Grand Prix tennis tour between 1973 and 1989. From 1979 the Japan Open was a joint tournament for both men and women.

In 2008 the Japan Open on the WTA Tour was downgraded to a $100,000+H ITF Women's Circuit event which was discontinued in 2010. The Ariake Coliseum then became the home of the Pan Pacific Open, another women's professional tournament on the WTA Tour.

The Japan Open was held in Ariake Tennis Forest Park in Koto, Tokyo, Japan, with its center court named the Ariake Coliseum. The Ariake Tennis Forest Park is an expansive tennis centre comprising 48 courts and a stadium with one of the first retractable roofs in tennis. 

In 2018, the Japan Open switched to the Musashino Forest Sports Plaza while the Ariake Coliseum was being renovated for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

The Japan Open Tennis Championships is the longest-running ATP Tour tournament in Asia, first held in 1972 and is currently an ATP World Tour 500 series event on the ATP Tour.
