Mariko Gotō (後藤 まりこ, Gotō Mariko) (born February 22 in Osaka) is a Japanese singer, lyricist, composer and actress.

Her career started in the early 2000s with the band Usagi (うさぎ), where she served as vocalist and guitarist. After it broke up in 2003, she joined punk jazz group Midori together with Usagi's bassist, Yoshifumi Kuwano. Midori released three full-length albums, five EPs, and a single. After its dissolution, Gotō focused on her solo career as a musician, as well as a stage, film, and television drama actress. In 2013, she provided vocals and lyrics for the opening song of the anime Flowers of Evil (ep. 4–6, "Aku no Hana -Nakamura Sawa-").[1] Her song "Sound of Me" was used as the ending theme of the drama Taberu Dake, where she played the lead role. In May 2016 it was reported that she decided to quit the music industry.[2][3]
