The Bishop of South Tokyo was a historic title of a bishop in the Nippon Sei Ko Kai, or Anglican Church in Japan.

Edward Bickersteth (1850–1897) was the first Bishop of South Tokyo from 1886 until his premature death in 1897.[1] He was born at Banningham, Norfolk, into a noted ecclesiastical family (his father was Bishop of Exeter from 1885 to 1900).[2]

The title of Bishop of South Tokyo was suspended in 1947 after the reorganization of the Nippon Sei Ko Kai into eleven dioceses.
