Prime Minister Yoko Kayabuki (茅葺よう子 Kayabuki Yōko) is Japan's newly elected prime minister in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG.

Kayabuki first appears in the second season of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG and is elected as Japan's first female prime minister. She reinstates Section 9 after a deal was made with Aramaki in the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, 2 years after the raid by Umibozu commandos on Section 9's headquarters. Kayabuki becomes a victim of the Individual Eleven and is involved with Section 9's investigation into the case. During the refugee crisis, she is arrested under charges of treason for requesting the UN to intervene in the crisis. She appears briefly in Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. Solid State Society, where she is Prime Minister again.
