Tatsumi Kumashiro (April 24, 1927 - February 24, 1995) was a Japanese film director best known known for his critically acclaimed, award-winning Roman Porno films, such as Ichijo Sayuri: Wet Desire (Ichijo Sayuri: Nureta yokujo) (1972) and The Woman with Red Hair (Akai kami no onna) (1979).

He has been called, "the most consistently successful director in Japan's cinematic history," and All Movie Guide calls him, "arguably the most important Japanese director to emerge during the 1970s."
