The Kikkawa clan (, Kikkawa-shi) was a prominent samurai clan of Japan's Sengoku period. The most famous member of the clan is likely Kikkawa Motoharu (1530-1586), one of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's generals, who was adopted into the family. Along with the Kobayakawa clan, the Kikkawa played an important role in Hideyoshi's Ky?sh? Campaign (1586-7), and later became daimyo in Izumo province and Iwakuni after that.

Origins

The founder of the clan, Kikkawa Tsuneyoshi (?), was a son of Irie Kageyoshi (?).[1] The Irie clan descends from the Southern House of the Fujiwara clan through the Kud? clan.[2][3]
