Koji Furuhata (古畑 弘二,   Furuhata Kōji) is a former Japanese actor who was affiliated with Shiki Theatre Company.[1] He made his film debut in the Japanese portion of the multinational film Love at Twenty, directed by Shintaro Ishihara. However, while still only a trainee, Furuhata planned to retire from acting as he had become almost completely deaf due to illness and had trouble delivering his lines;[citation needed][a] Toho offered Furuhata the role of Frankenstein in their tokusatsu film Frankenstein vs. Baragon, becoming his final and most widely recognized role. His current whereabouts are unknown.
