"Castanopsis cuspidata" (Japanese Chinquapin; Japanese shii, ) is a species of "Castanopsis" native to southern Japan and southern Korea.

It is a medium-sized evergreen tree growing to 20-30 m tall, related to beech and oak. The leaves are 5-9 cm long and 2-4 cm broad, leathery in texture, with an entire or irregularly toothed margin. It grows in woods and ravines, especially near the sea.

Its dead wood serves as host to many mushroom types, including the eponymous "shiitake".
