Yoshio Tsuchiya is a Japanese actor who has appeared in films such as Toshio Matsumoto's surreal masterpiece "Bara No Soretsu" (a.k.a. "Funeral Parade of Roses") and Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai (as the firebrand farmer Rikichi) and Red Beard, and Kihachi Okamoto's Kill!.
He has a long-standing interest in UFOs and had written several books on the subject. He preferred starring in science fiction films, usually as aliens, or people possessed by them, in such films as Battle in Outer Space, Monster Zero, and Destroy All Monsters. He lobbied for the title role in Tomei Ningen (1954), but was forced by the studio to play the leading man. Eventually realizing their mistake, he was cast in his favorite role, the title role in The Human Vapor.
He is also well-remembered for playing the pompous millionaire Fumio Kasai in Matango (1963).
He has a special appearance as a businessman and former World War II soldier in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, in which Godzilla looks him in the face before destroying him with a radiation blast.
