Princess Masako Takeda (恒久王妃昌子内親王 Tsunehisa Ōhi Masako naishinnō?), born Masako, Princess Tsune (常宮昌子内親王 Tsune-no-miya Masako Naishinnō?, 30 September 1888 – 8 March 1940), was the tenth child and sixth daughter of Emperor Meiji of Japan and one of his consorts, Lady Sachiko.
Her future husband, Prince Tsunehisa Takeda, was the eldest son of Prince Kitashirakawa Yoshihisa and thus the brother of Prince Kitashirakawa Naruhisa. Emperor Meiji authorized Prince Tsunehisa to start a new princely house in March 1906, largely to provide a household with suitable status for his sixth daughter Princess Tsune. Prince Takeda married Princess Masako on 30 April 1908, by whom he had a son and a daughter:
- Prince Tsuneyoshi Takeda (竹田宮恒徳王 Takeda-no-miya Tsuneyoshi Ō?) (1909–1992)
- Princess Ayako Takeda (禮子女王 Ayako Joō?), (1911–2003), married Count Sano Tsunemitsu.
She died on 8 March 1940, aged 51.
