Maeda Nariyasu was a lord of Kaga han. He is known for his marriage in 1827 to Yôhime, 21st daughter of Shogun Tokugawa Ienari.[1] A large red gate built at the entrance to the Kaga domain's kami-yashiki (upper mansion) in Edo still stands today, while the grounds of the mansion have become the main campus of the University of Tokyo.

He was succeeded by his son Maeda Yoshiyasu. One of his other sons, Maeda Toshimichi, succeeded Maeda Toshiyoshi as lord of Daishôji han. Another of his sons, Maeda Toshiatsu, succeeded Maeda Toshikata as lord of Toyama han.[2]
