The Toyotomi kamon.
  • Japanese: 豊臣(Toyotomi-ke)

The Toyotomi was a short-lived but very prominent samurai family which existed from 1585, when Hashiba Hideyoshi took the title of Kanpaku ("regent, chancellor") and, later that year, the family name Toyotomi, until 1615, when Hideyoshi's son Hideyori was destroyed by Tokugawa Ieyasu during the Osaka Campaign.
