The Tokugawa of Owari province were one of the Gosanke, the three branch families of Tokugawa Ieyasu's own lineage, and the highest ranking samurai families below that Tokugawa main line.

The clan maintained two mansions in Edo: one at Kôjimachi (the neighborhood is now known as Kioi-chô), and one at Ichigaya. The grounds of the latter is today home to the Ministry of Defense.
