Shiro Kawase (河瀬 四郎, Kawase Shirō, 7 July 1889 – 20 July 1946) was a vice admiral in the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II.
He was a torpedo expert and his extensive experience as a commander of destroyers and destroyer formations made him more knowledgeable about the escort of convoys than most Japanese commanders of his time.
He is best known for his command of the 5th Fleet during the latter stages of the Aleutians campaign in the spring and summer of 1943.
