Reibo Aoki (青木静夫, 青木鈴慕, Tokyo, Japan, October 10, 1935 - August 21, 2018) was a Japanese shakuhachi player.
He learned to play the shakuhachi from his father, Reibo Aoki I and became head of that lineage in 1975 becoming Reibo Aoki II. His rich sound and stunning performances in both the classical Kinko Ryu style and contemporary music have become a standard in shakuhachi music.
In 1999 Aoki Reibo was designated as one of the Living National Treasures of Japan for Shakuhachi.
