Sakai Tadashige was the 8th Edo period Sakai clan lord of Himeji han, and served as Tairô within the Tokugawa shogunate for much of 1865.

He was married to Enhime, a daughter of Honda Suketoshi (lord of Iiyama han).[1] Their first daughter, En, was born on 1862/9/27, but lived less than a year, dying on 1863/6/27 while on the way from Edo to Himeji.[1]

Tadashige was named Tairô on 1865/2/1 and remained in that post until 11/12 of the same year.[2]
