Nihongo|Toshiki Kaifu|海部 俊樹|Kaifu Toshiki|born January 2, 1931 is a Japanese politician who was the 76th and 77th Prime Minister of Japan from 1989 to 1991.

He was born in Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, and was educated at Chuo University and Waseda University. A member of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), Kaifu ran successfully for the Diet in 1960 and served for thirteen terms. He was education minister before rising to lead the party after the resignations of Takeshita Noboru and Sosuke Uno, elected on the platform of "clean leadership." Kaifu became the 76th Prime Minister of Japan in August 1989, but his faction was too small to push through the reforms Kaifu sought, and the continuing repercussions of the Sagawa scandal caused problems. He resigned in February 1991 and was replaced by Kiichi Miyazawa.

In 1994, he left the LDP to become head of the newly founded Shinshinto (New Frontier Party).
