Nishina Memorial Prize (仁科記念賞 Nishina Kinenshō?) is the oldest and most prestigious physics award in Japan.[1] Since 1955, the Prize has been awarded annually by the Nishina Memorial Foundation.[2] The Foundation was established to commemorate Yoshio Nishina, who was the founding father of modern physics research in Japan and a mentor of the first two Japanese Nobel Laureates, Hideki Yukawa and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga.
