Kuj? Michitaka ( , June 11, 1839 – January 4, 1906), son of regent Kuj? Hisatada and adopted son of his brother, Kuj? Yukitsune, was a kuge or Japanese court noble of the late Edo period and politician of the early Meiji era who served as a member of the House of Peers. One of his daughters, Sadako married Emperor Taish?.
In the bakumatsu period, Kuj? supported the Shogunate policy as one of highest courtier of the imperial court and hence lost the power at the very beginning of Meiji restoration when the annihilation of the Shogunate was announced on 1868-01-03. His right to show at the imperial court was halted. Soon later in the same year he was rehabilitated and appointed of the clan master of Fujiwara clan.
During the Boshin War, he had nominal leadership of the imperial army's Northern Pacification Command (?), and spent the latter part of the war in northern Japan.
