Toshio Furukawa (古川 登志夫 Furukawa Toshio, born July 16, 1946 in Tochigi) is a Japanese voice actor affiliated with Aoni Production. He was the original Japanese voice for Shiro Ginga in X-Bomber.

He became famous for his anime character roles in his career as Kagege (Keroro Gunso), Kai Shiden (Mobile Suit Gundam), Shin (Fist of the North Star), Asuma Shinohara (Patlabor), Piccolo (Dragon Ball), and Ataru Moroboshi (Urusei Yatsura). His debut voice role is a soldier in Brave Raideen. Toshio is a veteran who has played a variety of characters from comedians like Ataru of Urusei Yatsura and Inumaru of Gosenzosama Banbanzai, to calm, serious ones like Shin from Fist of the North Star and Piccolo of the Dragonball series. Furthermore, Toshio is capable of performing with a "boy voice" and has played noble hot-blooded heroes such as Prince Mito of Saikyō Robo Daiōja and Kento Tate of Future Robo Daltanius.

He performed in the band Slapstick (スラップスティック) with Toru Furuya, Kazuyuki Sogabe, Yūji Mitsuya and Akio Nojima. In 2007, Slapstick got together to pay tribute to former band members Hirotaka Suzuoki and Kazuyuki Sogabe (guitar).
