Kinko Kurosawa (黒沢 琴古 Kurosawa Kinko?) was an 18th-century komusō of the Fuke sect of Zen Buddhism. He was commissioned to travel round Japan and collect honkyoku, spiritual shakuhachi music pieces from his fellow mendicant monks.

The resulting collection of 36 honkyoku are the repertoire of the Kinko Ryu school of shakuhachi.
