Stardust Promotion Co., Ltd. (株式会社スターダストプロモーション?) is a leading Japanese talent agency,[1][2] headquartered in Shibuya, Tokyo. It was founded in 1979 and specializes in entertainment (music, cinema, modelling, etc.).

The agency has a dominant share in the management of actresses.[3] For example, it manages Yūko Takeuchi (best known for the movie Be with You), Miki Nakatani (Densha Otoko), and Kō Shibasaki (Socrates in Love).[4]

The agency also manages musical groups as Momoiro Clover Z[5] and Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku[6] and has its own independent record label.

In 2009, Stardust Promotion opened a branch in South Korea.[4]

In addition to the head office in Tokyo, Stardust Promotion has offices in Nagoya, in Osaka, and since lately in Fukuoka. The agency has recently started to put an emphasis on local talents and created several local idol groups, namely Team Syachihoko (in Nagoya) and Takoyaki Rainbow (in Osaka).[7]
