Kiichi Fujiwara (17 December 1880 - 6 March 1990) was a Japanese centenarian and the oldest living man in Japan from Eiju Tsuru's death on 11 January 1990 to his own death less than two months later on 6 March 1990, aged 109 years, 79 days.
Fujiwara was born in Oita prefecture. In his early years, he graduated from law school. From 1903 to 1945, he worked at a publishing company. After World War II, he 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. He passed away there on 6 March 1990, aged 109 years, 79 days, as Japan's oldest living man. He was succeeded as Japan's oldest man by Nisaburo Matsuyama.
