Mika Sakai (酒井美佳, Sakai Mika; born March 7, 1975) is a Japanese female professional ten-pin bowler. She is a member of the Japan Professional Bowling Association, license no. 268. Sakai is also a team member of the DHC Ladies Bowling Tour.
Sakai comes from a bowling family. Her father is Takeo Sakai, also a professional bowler in Japan. Her younger sister is Reika Sakai.
Sakai first started bowling while in elementary school. During the second grade of junior high-school, her father won the first All-Japan Championship. It was this event that inspired her to become a professional bowler. She frequented the bowling establishments every day, practicing after school while being coached by her father. She became a professional in 1992 at the age of 17, just missing out on breaking the record for being the youngest to become a professional in the JPBA (16). The Sakai's also became the first parent/child duo to be active professional bowlers at the same time.
In 2002, father and daughter formed a doubles team, and won the All-Japan Mixed Doubles tournament. In the same year, Sakai won the Tokai Women's Open. In 2006, Sakai became a part of the first Bowling Revolution P★League tournament.
