Yaho-Niwa is an album by the Japanese noise musician Merzbow. The first 50 copies came with a signed and numbered postcard.[1][2]

The photos were taken at Yaho Tenman-gū shrine, while niwatori is the Japanese word for chicken. The track "Venis #4" samples "9011" from Merzbient.

The album was announced and made available for pre-order in May 2011. Along with the announcement, a 13 minute sample of the track "Metal 22" was made available.[3]
