Keizo Hino (日野 啓三 Hino Keizo ?, June 14, 1929–October 14, 2002) was a Japanese author.

He won the 1974 Akutagawa Prize for Ano yūhi (The Evening Sun)[1] and the 1986 Tanizaki Prize for Sakyu ga ugoku yo ni (砂丘が動くように ?). Born in Tokyo, he accompanied his parents to Korea, when the country was still under Japanese colonial rule. After the war, he returned to Japan, graduating from the University of Tokyo and joining the staff of the Yomiuri Shimbun, a leading Japanese newspaper, in 1952. He served as a foreign correspondent in South Korea and Vietnam before becoming a novelist. Though he is often described as an environmentalist author, the focus of much of his fiction is the urban physical environment. Hino's works are striking for being simultaneously autobiographical and surrealistic. His novel Yume no Shima (lit. Dream Island) has been translated into German as Trauminsel; one short story, Bokushikan, has been translated into English as The Rectory; another short story, Hashigo no tatsu machi 梯子の立つ町, has been translated as "Jacob's Tokyo Ladder."
