The Ishii lock (石井閘門?), begun in 1878 and completed in 1880, is a lock on the canal beside the Kitakami River in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. Designed by Dutch engineer Cornelis Johannes van Doorn, who was a foreign advisor to the Meiji government, it is the earliest example of such a facility in Japan. In 2002, it was designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan.
