League tables for teams participating in the Japanese Regional Leagues, the fifth tier of the Japanese association football league system, in 2020. A total of 134 teams competed, split into 9 groups.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Japan, all matches in all regions were changed from double round-robin into single round-robin, except Chūgoku and Tōkai.

All regional champions qualified for the Regional Promotion Series. Similar to J.League, there was no relegation in this season to Prefectural Leagues (promotion and relegation between divisions were still available for some regions).

Chūgoku

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Chūgoku region played in a tournament (known as the CSL Championship 2020, or C-1 Cup), with 8 teams competing for a spot in the 2020 Regional Promotion Series. NTN Okayama and Dezzolla Shimane did not participate in this season.
