Shigeki Mori (森 茂喜 Mori Shigeki?) was a Japanese businessman and politician, mayor of Neagari, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan,[1] father of a former Japanese prime minister Yoshirō Mori.

During his term, he developed a relationship with the Siberian town of Shelekhov, particularly a bilateral dialogue to improve the gravesites of Soviet soldiers in Japan and Japanese soldiers in Siberia; he was so close to Russia that Japanese authorities monitored him closely as a potential communist sympathizer. He visited Shelekhov more than 15 times during his 35 years in office, and part of his ashes were buried there following his death.[2][3][4]
