The Japan Skating Federation says 25-year-old double Olympic champion is set to compete for first time this season in Nagano.
The 25-year-old is among the athletes registered for the event which will take place from 25-27 December in Nagano.
If he takes to the ice, it will be Hanyu's first competition this season and first appearance since February's Four Continents Championships, which he won.
The nationals serve as the JSF's last internal selection event for March's World Championships in Stockholm, Sweden.
In August, Hanyu announced that he would withdraw from this season's ISU Grand Prix series to protect his own health, as he suffers from asthma.
"I believe we should not create opportunities to spread the infection. If my withdrawal can help protect against the spread of infection, it may become one action which will contribute to stopping the spread of infection," he said then.
Should the two-time world champion take part in Nagano as planned next month, it will be his second nationals appearance in as many years after missing three editions from 2016–2018 due to injury or illness.
Uno and ladies' singles skater Kihira Rika, who both train in Switzerland, are also on the entry lists.
