100 Landscapes of Japan (Heisei period)
The 100 Landscapes of Japan (日本百景) is a list of famous scenic sites in Japan. This list was developed during the reign of the current emperor.
In 2009, the Yomiuri Shimbun sponsored an update. The newspaper and its readers selected the "100 Landscapes of Heisei" (平成百景 Heisei hyakkei). This new selection was supported by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
Three hundred sites were nominated and more than 640,000 votes were collected during the polling process.
