Takatsukasa Toshimichi (鷹司 平通?, 26 August 1923 – 27 January 1966), son of Duke Nobusuke, was a Japanese researcher of trains. He worked at TEI Park,[1] a museum in Tokyo. He married the third daughter of Emperor Hirohito, Princess Kazuko; they adopted a son from Ogyū-Matsudaira, Naotake.

On 28 January 1966, Toshimichi Takatsukasa was found dead of carbon monoxide poisoning at the apartment of his mistress, Michiko Maeda, a Ginza nightclub hostess, giving rise to widely speculative rumors in the Japanese press about his alleged double suicide.
