Eriko Arakawa (荒川恵理子 Arakawa Eriko?, born 30 October 1979, in Tokyo) is a Japanese soccer forward currently playing for Urawa Red Diamonds Ladies of L. League. She is also member of the Japanese national team.


Arakawa previously played for L. League side NTV Beleza. However, in the September 2008 WPS International Draft, she was drafted by FC Gold Pride in the top level US based Women's Professional Soccer league.[1]

In her first appearance for FC Gold Pride, Arakawa scored the club's first ever goal against Boston Breakers leading to a 2–1 victory. It would turn out to be her only goal of the season. Following the end of the WPS season, she was loaned back to NTV Beleza for the remainder of her contract, which was due to expire in September 2009.[2] In May 2010, she made a permanent move to Urawa Red Diamonds Ladies. She signed for AS Elfen Sayama FC in the Challenge League (Japan's 2nd tier) for the 2013 season.


Arakawa made her first appearance for Japan on 10 June 2000 against Canada in the Pan Pacific Games.
