In this Japanese name, the family name is Atobe.

Atobe Yoshisuke (跡部 良弼?, November 18, 1799 – February 1, 1869) was a Japanese samurai of the late Edo period. A hatamoto serving the Tokugawa shogun, Yoshisuke was the birth brother of the Bakufu senior councilor Mizuno Tadakuni. Atobe was not known for his good relations with daimyo, having once angered Date Yoshikuni, the powerful lord of Sendai in Mutsu Province by throwing him out of a highway lodging.

Atobe was appointed to the post of wakadoshiyori in 1868, and died roughly a year later.

His court title was Yamashiro no kami.
