Tsukushi Mamoru was a Fukuoka han retainer active in the sonnô jôi movement in the 1860s.

He was involved in a number of loyalist activities, including plotting to see the former exiled nobles Sanjô Sanetomi and four others returned to Kyoto after they had temporarily taken up residence in Dazaifu.

Following the Icchû Incident of 1865, he was sentenced to house arrest, but escaped and drowned to death while fleeing.
