Keigo Seki (関 敬吾 Seki Keigo?, 1899–1990) was a Japanese folklorist. He was influenced by Yanagita Kunio but often came to different conclusions regarding the same folktales. Along with collecting and compiling folktales, Seki also arranged them into a series of categories.

Seki was a native of Nagasaki Prefecture and graduate of Toyo University.
