Kazuyoshi Miura (三浦 知良, Miura Kazuyoshi, born on 26 February 1967), often known simply as Kazu (nicknamed as King Kazu), is a Japanese footballer who plays as a forward. He played for the Japanese national team and was the first Japanese recipient of the Asian Player of the Year award in 1993, an award presented annually by the Asian Football Confederation. He currently plays for Yokohama FC in the J. League Division 2. Kazu, whose rise to fame in Japan coincided with the launch of the J. League in 1993, was arguably Japan's first superstar in football.

Miura holds the records for being the oldest footballer and oldest goalscorer in worldwide professional leagues at age 50. His elder brother Yasutoshi was also a professional footballer.
