Prince Hozumi (穂積親王 Hozumi Shinnō?, ? – 30 August 715) was a Japanese prince, the son of Emperor Temmu and Soga no Ōnu-no-iratsume. He was the younger half-brother of Prince Takechi. After the death of Princess Tajima, with whom he had had a tryst, he married the poet Ōtomo no Sakanoe no Iratsume. He became Prime Minister in 705. It has been suggested he was banished to a mountain temple at Shiga in Ōmi, where became a monk at Sūfukuji, because of his affair with Princess Tajima.
