Seizō Fukumoto (福本 清三, Fukumoto Seizō) is a Japanese actor.

Born February 3, 1943,[1] he entered acting at age 15 in Kyoto, the capital of Japanese cinema. A specialist in film and television jidaigeki set in the Edo period, he most often plays a rōnin, but in his hundreds of appearances he has taken nearly every role. His forte is kirareyaku, the person who loses the sword fight. In addition, he appears in modern dramas in roles such as police and yakuza. The American film The Last Samurai brought him before an international audience in the role of the Silent Samurai.
