Yuji Ono (小野 裕二, Ono Yūji, born December 22, 1992) is a Japanese football player. He plays as a striker for Sagan Tosu.
Born in Yokosuka, next to a satellite city of Yokohama. Ono joined Yokohama F. Marinos youth academy at age 13. He was a member of the Yokohama F. Marinos youth team that won the Prince Takamado Cup in 2009 beating Júbilo Iwata. Ono made his competitive debut in a J1 League match against Sanfrecce Hiroshima at Hiroshima Big Arch on 18 July 2010, as a 62nd-minute substitute for Shingo Hyodo. At 17 years and 208 days, he was club's youngest-ever league debutante, a record previously held by Kota Mizunuma (17 years and 247 days). Two months later, on 5 September 2009, Ono scored his first goal in a 3–1 victory against V-Varen Nagasaki in the Emperor's Cup. In January 2011, he signed a new long term contract with Marinos.
On 20 July 2015, Ono signed a contract with Sint-Truiden.
