One Hundred Waterfalls of Japan (日本の滝百選 Nihon no taki hyakusen?) is a list of waterfalls in Japan compiled by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment in 1990.

Background[edit]

Per the Japanese government, there are 517 named waterfalls in Japan. Many of these waterfalls are located in remote mountain locations, but with an increase in hiking and tourism in recent years, the number of visitors has greatly increased, placing significant pressure on the surrounding environment.
