Three Views of Japan

The Three Views of Japan (?, Nihon Sankei) is the canonical list of Japan's three most celebrated scenic sights, attributed to 1643 and scholar Hayashi Gah?.[1] In 1915, modeled on the old Three Views of Japan, Jitsugyo no Nihon Sha (?) held a national election to determine a list of New Three Views of Japan. The Three Major Night Views of Japan (, Nihon Sandai Yakei) is the canonical list of Japan's three most celebrated scenic night views. In April 2003, the New Three Major Night Views of Japan and the 100 Night Views of Japan Club (?100?), a nonprofit organization, formed a selection committee and, together with its members, selected by vote the New Three Major Night Views of Japan (?), modeled on the traditional list of Three Major Night Views of Japan. In August 2004, they also announced the 100 Night Views of Japan (?).
