Ōsaki (大崎?) is a primarily commercial district in the northern part of Shinagawa, Tokyo, Japan. By today, this district has completed several urban renewal programs around Ōsaki Station of Yamanote Line, which include Ohsaki New City (completed in 1987), Gate City Ohsaki (1999), Art Village Osaki (2007), Oval Court Ohsaki (2004), and ThinkPark (2007).

Rissho University, its predecessor established in 1580 and reorganized into a university in 1924, is a private university with the main campus in Ōsaki. The 55th Prime Minister of Japan Tanzan Ishibashi served as this school's president from 1952 to 1968.
