Fujiwara no Kinshi (藤原忻子?, 1283–1352), also known as Chōrakumon-in (長楽門院?), was an Empress consort of Japan. She was the eldest daughter of Daijō-daijin Tokudaiji Kintaka. Her mother was Fujiwara no Yoshiko (藤原喜子?), the third daughter of Naidaijin Sanjō Kinchika. She became the consort of Emperor Go-Nijō.

In 1303, Kinshi became a court lady of Emperor Go-Nijō. She gained the position of chūgū later the same year. However, she did not bear the emperor any children. In 1308, Go-Nijō died, and Kinshi became a nun. In 1311, she was granted the name Chōrakumon-in. She died in 1352, at the age of 70.
