The 23-year-old completed his move to the Seasiders in the summer after impressing on loan last season and has scored four goals from midfield this term.
Rangers' Kevin Thomson returns after missing a large chunk of last season through injury and joins Wallace, formerly of Celtic and Sunderland, among Burley's midfield options.
Wallace, who can also operate at left-back, has only been capped at B level before.
Celtic's Scott Brown is included despite his club hinting that they would like him to rest a nagging ankle injury, picked up on international duty.
However, Burley said he had discussed the matter with Celtic counterpart Tony Mowbray.
"We had a chat about it," revealed Burley. "Scott has a little problem but he has been playing and training every week.They are happy to have him in the squad and there is no problem at all."
Forwards James McFadden, Kenny Miller and Chris Iwelumo are spared the long trip as they are all coming back from injuries, while elder statesmen David Weir, Graham Alexander and Paul Hartley are rested.
Kilmarnock's Kevin Kyle is overlooked, having been called up for the recent double-header against Macedonia and Holland then withdrawing to have minor knee surgery.
Former Dundee United stalwart Paul Hegarty was also confirmed as the latest addition to the Scotland coaching set up.
"When George phoned it took me one second to accept," said the former Livingston manager. "It was a bolt out of the blue and I accepted immediately.
"To play for your country is the best but to be part of the coaching team is just as exciting. I was absolutely delighted with the offer."
The Scots last faced Japan in 2006 when they won the Kirin Cup under Walter Smith following a goalless draw.
The sides have only ever met twice, with the previous friendly encounter also ending 0-0 in 1995.
