Tsuchiya Masanao (土屋 政直?, March 16, 1641 – December 23, 1722), was a daimyo in Japan during the Edo period.[1] Masanao's daimyō family was descended from Minamoto Yasuuji (Seiwa-Genji). The descendants of Tsuchiya (1585–1612) lived successively at Kururi in Kazusa province; after 1669 at Tsuchiura in Hitachi province; after 1681 at Tanaka in Suruga province; and then, after 1688, again at Tsuchiura in Hitachi.[2]
