Yoshihiro Takahashi (高橋よしひろ, Takahashi Yoshihiro) is a Japanese manga artist. He writes under a pen name in which his first name is spelled out in hiragana (よしひろ).

Takahashi was born September 18, 1953, in Akita Prefecture. He was very interested in drawing growing up and, in the 60's, started publishing small comics in several newspapers and magazines. His first manga was Shitamachi Benkei in 1971, but his break through came in 1983 when publishing the popular manga Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, also known as Silver Fang, or Silver Fang Meteor Gin, the story about a bear-hound who goes in search for strong dogs all over the country of Japan to fight the villain of the story, a bear named Akakabuto. He got the idea in 1980 when he read an article about domestic dogs that ran away from their owners and lived as wild dogs in the mountains. The pure idea fascinated him, which lead him to write the manga about the puppy. In 1987, the series won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shōnen manga.

Takahasi started to publish the sequel, Ginga Densetsu Weed, in 1999 and it soon became a hit as well as an anime which aired on September 17th, 2005.

Takahashi has been touted as the first manga artist to have featured a puppy as a brave and rightful hero.
