The Owari (徳川尾張家 Tokugawa Owari-ke?) branch of the Tokugawa clan is the seniormost house of the Gosanke ("three honourable houses of the Tokugawa").[1] Originally descended from Tokugawa Yoshinao, the ninth son of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the original line became extinct in 1800 with the death of the ninth lord and family head. It has since been kept in existence through repeated adoptions from the two remaining houses, and is currently headed by a member of the Kishu branch. For over 250 years, the Owari family ruled Owari Domain, the area surrounding present day Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, using Nagoya Castle as its main base.[2] Another residence was the Ōzone Shimoyashiki.

The treasures of the Owari branch are kept in the Tokugawa Art Museum in Nagoya.

The present head of the family is Tokugawa Yoshitaka.
