  • Japanese: 友寄喜恒 (Tomoyose Kikou)

Tomoyose Kikô was an Okinawan painter. Several of his paintings, including images of Ryukyuan figures, genre paintings, and birds and flowers, are in the collection of the Tokyo National Museum.

He is also known to have shown several paintings at the 1881 Domestic Industrial Exposition, though little is known about which works those were, or what they depicted.
