Denjirō Kōtoku (幸徳 傳次郎, Kōtoku Denjirō, November 5, 1871 – January 24, 1911), better known by the nom de plume Shūsui Kōtoku (幸徳 秋水, Kōtoku Shūsui), was a Japanese socialist and anarchist who played a leading role in introducing anarchism to Japan in the early 20th century, particularly by translating the works of contemporary European and Russian anarchists, such as Peter Kropotkin, into Japanese. He was a radical journalist, and he was executed for treason by the Japanese government.

He also contributed articles to Sekai fujin (Women of the World), a socialist women's paper.
