Wakako Matsumoto (松本 和香子 Matsumoto Wakako?) (April 1, 1961 - ), better known as Kujira (くじら Kujira?), is a Japanese seiyū from the Tokyo Metropolis area. She is employed by 81 Produce. Veteran seiyū Shigeru Chiba, another member of 81 Produce, gave Kujira her nickname (meaning "whale").

Kujira's distinctive voice is described as hoarse and androgynous. Thus, many of her characters are middle-aged. Her best-known roles are Otose of Gin Tama and Orochimaru, an antagonist of Naruto.
