Kiichi Fujiwara [Japanese: 藤原喜一] (17 December 1880 – 6 March 1990), also known as Chusui Fujiwara [Japanese: 藤原楚水], was a Japanese centenarian who was the oldest living man in Japan at the time of his death.
Kiichi Fujiwara was born in Bungotakada, Oita Prefecture, Japan on 17 December 1880. In his early years, he graduated from law school. From 1903 to 1945, he worked at a publishing company.
After World War II, Fujiwara taught Oriental Art and Chinese calligraphy at Tokyo Gakugei University and Yokohama National University. During his later years, he wrote numerous books on Chinese calligraphy and poetry.
Eventually, Fujiwara moved to a nursing home in Zushi, Kanagawa Prefecture. Following the death of 110-year-old Eiju Tsuru on 11 January 1990, he became the oldest living man in Japan.
