Ji River may refer to two separate former rivers in China.
The Ji Shui (Chinese: 姬水, p Jī Shuǐ, w Chi Shui) was a former river in north-eastern China. It was credited with being the home of the Yellow Emperor's tribe and gave its name to the Zhou dynasty, whose surname was recorded as 姬. It is thought by some Chinese historians to be identical to the modern Fen River in Shanxi.
The Ji He (s 济河, t 濟河, p Jì Hé, w Chi Ho, lit. "Ferry River") was another former river in north-eastern China which gave its name to the city of Jinan, the modern capital of Shandong province. It disappeared during one of the massive floods of the early 1850s, when the Yellow River shifted its course from below the Shandong peninsula to north of it. In the process, it overtook the Ji and assumed its bed.
