Toda Ginjirô was a notable Mito han karô (House Elder) of the Bakumatsu period.

Ginjirô was placed under house arrest by the shogunate along with former lord of Mito Tokugawa Nariaki and fellow karô Fujita Toranosuke; Toda and Fujita were released, however, on 1846/12/28, while Nariaki remained confined for a time.

By 1853, Toda and Fujita were actively engaged in petitioning the shogunate to allow for Nariaki's involvement in discussions or policy decisions regarding foreign relations and coastal defense; they were eventually successful, and Nariaki was formally brought into policy discussions.
