The Empress's Cup All-Japan Women's Soccer Championship Tournament (皇后杯全日本女子サッカー選手権大会, Kōgōhai Zen Nippon Joshi Sakkaa Senshuken Taikai), or The Empress's Cup, is a Japanese women's football competition. As an elimination tournament, it can be considered the female counterpart to the men's Emperor's Cup. The name "Empress's Cup" has been used since the 2012 season as the Empress's Cup trophy was founded in that year.[1]

From 2004 to 2011 season (New Year's Day of 2005 to 2012), the final was played on New Year's Day at the National Stadium in Tokyo before the Emperor's Cup final, and was regarded as the traditional closing match of the season. Since 2012, the final has been played separately from the Emperor's Cup final.[2]
