Takashi Hosokawa (細川たかし?), born 細川貴志 (Hosokawa Takashi) on 15 June 1950, Makkari, Abuta District, Hokkaidō, Japan) is a Japanese male enka singer.

In 1975, he debuted with the song "Kokoro Nokori". Hosokawa immediately became one of the most popular enka and pop singers in Japan. He took part in the Kōhaku Uta Gassen for 32 consecutive years, but he was finally forced to reject NHK's offer in 2007 due to the Enten controversy.[1]
