Shinji Saito is a Japanese 2A yo-yo player. He is a thirteen-time concurrent World 2A Champion, and is considered by many in the yo-yo community to be the greatest competitive yo-yo player of all time. Though he mainly plays in 2A (two-handed looping), he also boasts considerable skill in 1A (string play).

Formerly a long-time member of Team Yomega, Saito was briefly affiliated with YoYoFactory, and is currently sponsored by Turning Point. During the late 1990s, he was a member of Team High Performance Japan, which was vital to Bandai's Hyper Yo-Yo promotions in Japan.
