Michio Mamiya (born June 29, 1929)[1] is a Japanese composer.

Born in Hokkaido,[2] he studied at the Tokyo University of the Arts. His interest in Japanese folk music led him to compose several choral works incorporating traditional elements. He is particularly noted for his opera: his Narukami (1974) "won a grand prix at the Salzburg Opera Festival".[1]
