Masako Nozawa (野沢 雅子), born Masako Tsukada (塚田 雅子; on October 25, 1936), is a voice actress and actress affiliated with (and the chairman of) Office Nozawa. Her husband, Masaaki Tsukada, is also a voice actor.

In the Dragon Ball franchise, she voices Goku and every biological male relative of him (Gohan, Goten, Goku Jr., Bardock), except for Raditz. She also voices Goku's doppleganger Turles in the movie Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might and the OVA Dragon Ball: Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans.


While born in the Tokyo Metropolitan area, she was raised in Numata, Gunma. Nozawa made her movie debut as a child actor at the age of 2.

Throughout her career as a voice actress, she has performed many male roles (most notably as all the male members of Goku's family in the Dragon Ball franchise, except for Raditz), leading Japanese fans to give her the nickname "The Eternal Boy". These days, however, she prefers the roles of elderly woman characters, although she continues to perform other roles (including young boys) occasionally.

As a seiyū, she is most known for the roles of Tetsuro Hoshino (Galaxy Express 999), Kitaro (GeGeGe no Kitaro, first and second series), Guilmon (Digimon Tamers), and Son Goku (Dragon Ball Z). She has also voiced two separate characters named "Hiroshi", a character in Dokonjō Gaeru, and the character known in the U.S. as "Pidge" in Hyakujūō Golion (the "Lion Force" arc of Voltron).

On April 1, 2006, she resigned from 81 Produce to establish Office Nozawa.
