NO PLAN is a Japanese konto style comedy group, and is also occasionally known for their music. The group is best known for appearing regularly on the late night owarai show, Uchimura Produce (内村プロデュース) until late 2005, when the show was cancelled. The group consists of 6 male members; Kazuki Ōtake and Masakazu Mimura of Summers, Red Yoshida and Golgo Matsumoto of TIM, Ryō Fukawa, and the leader of the group, the eminent Japanese comedian Teruyoshi Uchimura.

The origin of the group's name traces back to one of their first television appearances on the popular music show, Music Station in 2003. Having arrived to sing a song, but not having prepared any lyrics, a fellow guest--Morning Musume's Mari Yaguchi--commented on-air, "No plan, huh?", and the name stuck. Their first album was then named We are NO PLAN.
In 2004, NO PLAN was selected to perform the title song to the new Crayon Shin-chan movie, and they also managed to land their first live appearance. Although they released another single, Oh! Summer, and a new album, SUMMER PLAN, in 2005, their main TV outlet Uchimura Produce was cancelled on September 26, 2005.
Not long after the show was cancelled, NO PLAN released a third album, LAST PLAN, and though the members continue to appear as NO PLAN on many variety shows, and on the occasional Uchimura Produce special, the comedians generally appear alone or in their own kombi.
