The Lijiang River (Hànzì: 漓江, Pinyin: Líjiāng, On'yomi: Rikō) is a real river that flows in the Southern Guangxi Zhuang region of the People's Republic of China.

This river is mentioned both in Shenmue II and Shenmue III. The fictional city of Niaowu is located on its banks.


  • The name Lijiang River is actually redundant, since "Jiang" in Chinese means "river" and it'd therefore be more correct to call it "Li River".
