The Suntory Music Award (Japanese: サントリー音楽賞, Santorī ongakushō), previously known as the Torii Music Award (鳥井音楽賞, Torii ongakushō), designed to promote Western music in Japan, has been given by the Suntory Music Foundation since their establishment in 1969. The award is presented annually to individuals or groups for the greatest achievement in the development of Western or contemporary music in Japan during the previous year.

The current prize is 7,000,000 yen (approximately US $70,000). A Suntory Music Award Commemorative Concert is held annually in Suntory Hall to introduce and popularize the work of the recipient.
