Nikaidō clan (二階堂氏, Nikaidō-shi) is a Japanese samurai kin group.[1]

History[edit]

The Nikaidō claim descent from Fujiwara Yukimasa who was the first to take the Nikaidō name.[1]

The clan ruled over the Iwase District of Mutsu Province during the Sengoku period. Sukagawa Castle was their main residence.
