Genzō Wakayama (若山 弦蔵, Wakayama Genzō, September 27, 1932) is a Japanese voice actor and disc jockey from Ōdomari, Karafuto Prefecture. He moved to Sapporo, Hokkaido as a youth and graduated from Sapporo South High School. He is currently freelance.

Due to his low bass voice, Wakayama often voices villainous or calm characters. He is the official Japanese dub-over artist of actors Sean Connery and Raymond Burr. As a disc jockey, Wakayama hosted a program on TBS Radio from 1973 to 1995 that ran for 5,700 installments. Wakayama also narrated over 800 episodes of the television jidaigeki Abarenbo Shogun from 1978 to 2003.
