The Keraikedagusuku family are a prominent family of Iriomote-jima.

The family was appointed governors, or stewards (大屋子), of the island by the Kingdom of Ryûkyû royal government (based at Shuri on Okinawa Island), in the 15th or 16th century, possibly beginning with Keraikedagusuku Yôcho, who helped arrange peace with Ishigaki-jima.
