Kamatari Fujiwara (藤原 釜足 Fujiwara Kamatari, January 15, 1905 - December 21, 1985) was a Japanese actor.
He was born in Tokyo, on January 15, 1905, in Tokyo, Japan. Fujiwara's parents ran a printing business. The business did not go well, so at the age of 10, Fujiwara started working at a local confectionery store.
By the age of 14 he started selling timber for building and manufacturing in Shizuoka prefecture. A year later he returned to Tokyo to study as a pharmacist.
Fukiwara worked regularly and extensively with Akira Kurosawa, and was known for both being adept at comic acting, as well as being able to do serious roles
Kamatari Fujiwara est connu principalement pour sa longue collaboration avec Akira Kurosawa à l'instar de Toshiro Mifune. Arthur Penn lui a offert l'occasion de tourner aux États-Unis, dans le rôle muet de l'artiste, dans Mickey One. L'échec du film le renvoya au Japon.
Kamatari Fujiwara a tourné dans près de 240 films entre 1933 et 1984.
Il a été marié à l'actrice Sadako Sawamura de 1936 à 1946.
