Miho Nonaka (野中 生萌 , Nonaka Mihō, born May 21, 1997) is a Japanese competition boulderer.

Her father and sister introduced her to climbing when she was 9, and she competed in her first world cup aged 17. She is one of the most successful young climbers on the Bouldering World Cup circuit and has recently started competing in speed and lead in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, where climbers are supposed to compete in all disciplines. In 2018, she won the Bouldering World Cup by earning one gold medal and six silver medals in the seven events of that season.

In 2019, she won three Climbing Japan Cup competitions: Bouldering Japan Cup, Speed Japan Cup, and Combined Japan Cup.

In December 2020, Nonaka's qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics was confirmed after a dispute between the IFSC and the Japan Mountaineering and Sport Climbing Association.
