Jingū Seamount, also called Jingū Guyot, is a guyot of the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain in the Pacific Ocean. It erupted 55 million years ago. The seamount is elongated in structure, running North-South, and has an oval shaped crater in the center, which is evidence of collapse when above sea level.[1][2]

The seamont was named in 1954 by Robert S. Dietz,[2] after Japanese Empress Jingū.[2]
