The Japan Football Association ((日本語:Nihon Sakkā Kyōkai), ''Japan Soccer Association'', ),〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=組織-JFA-日本サッカー協会 )〕 is the governing body responsible for the administration of football in Japan. It is responsible for the national team as well as club competitions.
The organisation was founded in 1921 as the , and became affiliated with FIFA in 1929. In 1945, the name of the organisation was changed to the ; its Japanese name was changed to the current title in 1975. This reflected common use of the word ''sakkā'' (サッカー), derived from "soccer", rather than the older Japanese word ''shūkyū'' (蹴球; literally "kick-ball"). The word ''sakkā'' gained popularity during the post-World War II occupation of Japan by the Allied powers. The association generally translates its name to "Japan Football Association" in English, though "Japan Soccer Association" is also used.
The symbol of the JFA is the Yatagarasu, a mythical three-legged raven that guided Emperor Jimmu to Mount Kumano. Yatagarasu is also the messenger of the supreme Shinto sun goddess Amaterasu.
