The Japan Basketball League (JBL) is a professional basketball league in Japan. It makes up the top-tier of basketball in Japan alongside the bj league, Japan's other basketball competition, with no promotion and relegation between bj and the JBL.

The JBL is composed of two divisions, the JBL (Division 1, formerly Super League) and the JBL2 (Division 2, formerly Japan League).

In June 2012, the Japan Basketball Association announced to establish a National Basketball League (NBL) as the topflight professional league in Japan. The 2012–13 season becomes the last JBL season as JBL teams will join the NBL alongside an undetermined number of teams from the bj league.
