The world number one shuttler's 11 tournament wins have been entered into GWR as the most recorded by a men's singles player in a season.
"It's an honour and I'm very honoured," Momota said, according to NHK.
"It's a famous book that everyone knows, and I'm really happy that my name will appear there."
He added on social media: "I will work hard on badminton every day to break this record further."
Momota suffered facial injuries in a traffic accident in Malaysia in January, including a fractured eye socket which impaired his vision.
After the accident, which claimed the life of the van driver transporting Momota and also injured three other people, the 26-year-old considered retirement from badminton as he agonised over his future career.
After successful surgery on his eye socket, Momota said in June that he was back to his best and could see without problems.
The Japanese star remains one of the favourites to win Olympic gold on home soil at the postponed Tokyo 2020 Games next year.
No-one has knocked him off top spot in the BWF World Rankings since he first made it his own in September 2018, even with his injury, with the rankings having been frozen in March.
Instead, his first competition since the accident will now come next month, when Momota takes part in the All-Japan national championships.
