Toshimichi Takatsukasa

Toshimichi Takatsukasa (鷹司 平通, Takatsukasa Toshimichi, 26 August 1923 – 27 January 1966), son of Duke Nobusuke, was a Japanese researcher of trains. He was a descendant of Tokugawa Yoshinao and consequently was born into an aristocratic family, but, like all Japanese aristocrats, lost his title with the post-war legal reforms of 1947. He worked at TEI Park,[1] a railroad museum in Tokyo. He married the third daughter of Emperor Hirohito, Princess Kazuko; they adopted a son from Ogyū-Matsudaira, Naotake.
