Ken Tokura (都倉 賢, Tokura Ken?, born June 16, 1986 in Shibuya, Tokyo) is a Japanese football player.[1]

On 30 June 2012, Tokura scored a long-distance goal from outside the penalty box and celebrated his goal with a "Mario Balotelli-style" celebration, which resembles the celebration after Balotelli's second goal against Germany in Euro 2012 Semi Final. He was then given a yellow card by the referee.[2]
