From Shiretoko Peninsula up north in Hokkaido to Yakushima in Kyushu down south, only but 100 streams have been picked most worthy in this book  「日本百名谷」  with much debate over the chosen few. Difficulty of the climb, beauty of the stream, size of the falls and many other aspects have been considered. After all, Japan is a country of mountains and streams, and impossible to pick but only 100.

Still when looking at this list of the best 100 mountain streams in Japan, it is impressive to say the least. If a person were to climb this all, it would take considerable persistence, time and physical strength, if not impossible.  Top climbers have gathered for the composition of this book. Without the help of these climbers, this task would not have been possible. Though this lists the “best” river climbs, we would prefer if you don’t hold them in comparison with other rivers. Take them in for what they are, great streams for sawanobori.
