Utagawa Yoshiiku (1833-1904) (Japanese: 歌川 芳幾) was a Japanese printmaker and newspaper illustrator. He was the son of a teahouse proprietor and became a student of Utagawa Kuniyoshi.


His works include the print Kokkei Wanisshi-ki (滑稽倭日史記) "Comical Record of Japanese History"), which employs the traditional theme of Hyakki Yakō on contemporary Japanese military actions in China.
