Hisao Kami (上 久雄 Kami Hisao, born June 28, 1941) is a former Japanese football player and manager. He was part of the Japan national team for the 1964 Summer Olympics football competition in Tokyo.[1]


In 1972 he retired from playing for his club, Yawata Steel (later; Nippon Steel), in which he had been one of the most successful stars, but as their manager in 1980-83 and 1987-89 he oversaw a downward spiral as the once-great club, former Emperor's Cup winners and contenders for the Japan Soccer League title, were relegated to Division 2 and, a decade later, to the Kyushu regional league, where they would stay until their demise in the late 1990s.
