Ichikawa was short-listed for the 1998 World Cup, but national coach Takeshi Okada dropped him together with Kazuyoshi Miura and Tsuyoshi Kitazawa at the final training camp in Nyon, Switzerland.

In March 2002, he was elected Japan for the first time in 4 years by Philippe Troussier. He was also chosen for the 2002 World Cup finals and played three games.
