In retaining their Hong Kong title, Fiji head Pool A in Tokyo and face matches against Portugal, South Africa and Spain.
Wales reached their first ever Cup final in IRB Sevens rugby in Hong Kong and their runners-up place means they head Pool B next weekend with matches against the fourth-placed team in Hong Kong, Kenya, as well as USA and Scotland.
HSBC Sevens World Series leaders New Zealand start in Pool C, where they are joined by hosts Japan as well as Canada and France.
Finally, Pool D features four evenly-matched sides in Australia, Samoa, England and Argentina.
After six of the nine rounds in the 2012/13 Series, defending champions New Zealand lead with 113 points from Fiji in second place (88). Samoa move up to third (84), South Africa fall to fourth (78) and Kenya climb to fifth (72).
