Matsudaira Munehide (松平 宗秀?, October 21, 1809 – December 20, 1873), also known as Honjō Munehide (本庄 宗秀?), was a Japanese daimyo of the late Edo period who ruled the Miyazu Domain (modern-day Miyazu, Kyoto). He was known by the titles "Hōki-no-kami" (伯耆守, Hōki-no-kami?) (post-1840) or "Tango-no-kami" (丹後守, Tango-no-kami?) (post-1868).[1]
