Nakamura Dōseki (中村 道碩, 1582 – 1630) was a Japanese professional go player. Tradition counts him as the founder of the Inoue house. This was in fact a retrospective inclusion, essentially a fabrication of the early nineteenth century by Inoue Genan Inseki. It accounts for the name Inoue Nakamura Dōseki sometimes given.
He was the second Meijin. He is quite famous for his game against Yasui Santetsu, in which the first play was at a 3-10 point on a side, going against the orthodoxy about starting in a corner.
