The Governor-General of Taiwan (?, Taiwan S?toku) was the head of the Government-General of Taiwan in the Japanese era (including Formosa and the Pescadores) when they were part of the Empire of Japan, from 1895 to 1945.

The Japanese Governors-General were members of the Diet, civilian officials, Japanese nobles or generals. They exercised their power on behalf of the Sovereign of Taiwan (the Emperor of Japan) until the dissolution of the Empire when the dominion came under administration of the Republic of China and was renounced by Japan.[1]
