Kujō Michiie (九条 道家) (1193 — April 1, 1252) was a Japanese regent in the 13th century. He was the father of Kujō Yoritsune and grandson of Kujō Kanezane (also known as Fujiwara no Kanezane). He was the father of Norizane and Yoritsune. His third son Ichijō Sanetsune was the founding father of Ichijō family, while his second son Nijō Yoshizane founded Nijō family.

The Kujō family were sponsors of the Kitano Shrine.

In 1219, Kujō Michiie offered an emakimono named "Kitano Tenjin Engi Emaki" (Illustrated Scroll of the History of the Kitano Shrine) to the Kitano shrine. He gave an enlarged version of the history to the Kitano shrine in 1223.[1]

In 1226, Michiie managed to have his son Yoritsune appointed fourth shogun of the Kamakura shogunate.
