Eisuke Takizawa (September 6, 1902 Mita, Minato, Tokyo-November 29, 1965) also known as Eiichi Nariyama, Kinpachi Kajiwara, Ken Takizawa or Takizawa Eisuke was a Japanese film director, screenwriter and actor.

During World War II, Takizawa served as a propaganda film director for the Japanese government, producing films that supported the war effort. However, after the war, he openly criticized the government's actions and changed his name to Eiichi Nariyama as a form of protest.

Some of his most notable works include "Hunting Rifle" (1957), "The Sands of Kurobe" (1960), and "Yojimbo" (1961).

Takizawa's contributions to the Japanese film industry were recognized with numerous awards, including the Best Director prize at the Cannes Film Festival for his work on "Hymn to a Tired Man" (1960). Despite his successes, he remained humble and committed to his craft until his death in 1965.
