Houko Kuwashima (桑島 法子 Kuwashima Hōko?) is a seiyū and singer born December 12, 1975 in Kanegasaki, Isawa, Iwate Prefecture, Japan. She is capable of playing a variety of roles, ranging from young boys to feminine women. Kuwashima is currently affiliated with Aoni Production. Her given name, Houko (法子?), is sometimes misread as Noriko, even in Japan. This may be because Noriko is another valid reading of 法子, as seen in the name of Noriko Sakai, a famous Japanese actress.

She gives off a very Japanese formal and serious feeling when with others.
