The Gate of Youth (青春の門 Seishun no mon?) is a 1981 film directed by Kinji Fukasaku and Koreyoshi Kurahara.

It is based on a story by Hiroyuki Itsuki that was originally serialized in the magazine Shukan Gendai in 1969-70. The same story inspired a 1975 film, also titled Seishun no mon (青春の門?), as well as three separate television productions in 1976-77 (TBS), 1991 (TV Tokyo), and 2005 (TBS).[1]
