Yoshie Shiratori (白鳥 由栄, Shiratori Yoshie, July 31, 1907 – February 24, 1979) was a Japanese national born in Aomori Prefecture. His family name Shiratori means "swan" in Japanese. Shiratori, who became an anti-hero in Japanese culture, is famous for having escaped from prison four times.
Akira Yoshimura published a novel Hagoku based on him. A memorial to Shiratori is in the Abashiri Prison Museum.
There are numerous takes involving his escapes. The information has been documented sometimes and sometimes it has been folkloric at most.
