New Japan Pro-Wrestling Co., Ltd. (Shin Nihon Puroresu Kabushiki-kaisha), care funcționează ca New Japan Pro-Wrestling (denumit în continuare "Shin Nihon Puroresu") și uneori denumit NJPW sau pur și simplu New Japan, este o promoție japoneză de puroresu (wrestling profesionist), fondată în ianuarie 1972 de Antonio Inoki. În 2005, Inoki a vândut promovarea companiei Yuke, care a vândut-o ulterior la Bushiroad în 2012. Naoki Sugabayashi a fost președinte al promoției începând din septembrie 2013, în timp ce Katsuhiko Harada a fost președinte al promoției începând din februarie 2016 .

Datorită programului TV difuzat pe Asahi TV, NJPW este cea mai mare promoție profesionistă de lupte din Japonia și cea de-a doua cea mai mare promoție din lume. A fost afiliată cu National Wrestling Alliance la diferite puncte din istoria sa. NJPW a încheiat acorduri cu diverse promoții MMA și lupte profesionale în întreaga lume, printre care WWE, World Championship Wrestling, American Wrestling Association, World Class Championship Wrestling, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, WAR, UWFi, Ring of Honor, Pride Fighting Championships și Jersey All Pro Wrestling. Cel mai mare eveniment al NJPW este January 4 Tokyo Dome Show, desfășurat în fiecare an din 1992 și promovat în prezent sub bannerul Wrestle Kingdom.
