Tokugawa Narikatsu was a late Edo period lord of Wakayama han, and the adoptive father of Tokugawa Yoshitomi, who would later become Shogun Tokugawa Iemochi.

Born into the Shimizu Tokugawa clan, he was adopted into the Kishû Tokugawa clan in order to provide lord of Wakayama, Tokugawa Nariyuki, with an heir. Upon Nariyuki's death on 1846/int.5/8, he then succeeded Nariyuki as head of the Kishû Tokugawa and lord of Wakayama.[1] He married Kanjo-in, a daughter of Udaijin Konoe Tadahiro,[2] and adopted Nariyuki's illegitimate son Tokugawa Yoshitomi as his heir the following year.[3]

Narikatsu died on 1849/3/27, and was succeeded by Yoshitomi.

In 1854, Shogun Tokugawa Iesada declared that the shogunate was confiscating the territory of the Shimizu Tokugawa since they had not had a head of household for many years.[4]
