Okura Tadayoshi is a Japanese idol, singer and actor. He is from Higashiosaka, Osaka, Japan. He's a member of popular boys band under Johnny & Associates called Kanjani8.

Okura Tadayoshi had been chosen to be a part of V West (a Johnny's Jr. group) before its formation. His interest being in dancing and thinking that an instrument would tie him down, he declined the position, a move he would later regret. He was a member of Johnny's unit MAO for a while.

Later, he got a second chance when Johnny Kitagawa wanted an eighth member to form Kanjani8 who could also be the drummer for V West. Yasuda Shota told Johnny that since Okura could dance well, he'll be able to play the drums. Not knowing how to drum but eager to try, Okura began intensive lessons a month prior to the formation of Kanjani Eight. He had his first solo concert in 2008. He is also active in TV dramas, playing a few major roles such as Yasuko to Kenji, Hissatsu Shigotonin, ROMES and GM Odore Doctor. In 2010, he appeared in the movie for the first time' playing the role of swordsman Tsuruoka in Ooku.

On April 30, 2022 it was that he would go on temporary hiatus due to low-tone sensorineural hearing loss in the right ear and tinnitus in both ears. On June 18, 2022 it announced that he would resume his activities.

On February 4, 2024 it was officially announced that Kanjani8 has changed their group name to SUPER EIGHT.
