Shō Eki (尚 益, December 7, 1678 – August 16, 1712) was the 12th king of the Second Shō Dynasty of the Ryukyu Kingdom, who ruled from 1710 to 1712.
It was said that he was born with harelip, which made his grandfather Shō Tei worry. A Ryukyuan named Takamine Tokumei (高嶺徳明) met a Chinese doctor Huang Huiyou (黃會友) in Fuzhou. Huang taught Takamine how to repair a cleft palate. Takamine came back to Ryukyu in 1688, and had the Prince's lip repaired in the next year.
Shō Eki succeeded his grandfather Shō Tei as king in 1710, and died two years later.
