  • Japanese/Chinese: 宏基 (Ô Kôki / Wēng Hóngjī)

Ô Kôki was a Ryukyuan scholar-official and court musician.

He began as a novice permitted to practice with the palace's ensemble (御書院御座楽稽古相附) in 1746, and became a full court dancer in 1755.

His father, Ô Nindô, was also a prominent musician at court, and likely the youngest person to ever serve as gakushi (lead musician) on a Ryukyuan mission to Edo.
