The family was founded by Fujiwara Kanehira (1228– 1294), who was the sixth son of Konoe Iezane. He was the first to take this name. The family took its name from the section of Kyoto in which they resided. The family crest is the peony.
The Takatsukasa family died out in the Sengoku period. Later, at the beginning of the Edo period, a son of Nijō Haruyoshi took the name Takatsukasa Nobufusa and revived the household which halted at Tadafuyu.
