Takeaki Kunimoto is a Japanese composer, known for his numerous contributions to games by Hudson Soft. Toshiyuki Sasagawa asked him to apply at Hudson after Takeaki demonstrated a Yamaha CX-11 computer. He was 23 when he started working for Hudson, and his first work was for Challenger. He worked there for a couple years composing music for the NES and TurboGrafx-16. He currently plays in a band by the name of Salt Peanuts.

Sometimes, Takeaki is seen under the name "Kinoko Kunimoto". Kinoko is Japanese for "mushroom".
