We compared the antimicrobial susceptibility of Mycoplasma pneumoniae isolated from pediatric patients in Japan in 2011–2012 and 2015–2016 when epidemics occurred. The antimicrobial activity of macrolides and tetracyclines against M. pneumoniae tended to be restored in 2015–2016. There was no change in the antimicrobial activity of quinolones against M. pneumoniae.
