Fujiwara no Tameie (藤原 為家, 1198-1275) was a Japanese poet and compiler of Imperial anthologies of poems.[1]

Tameie was the second son of poet Teika and married Abutsu-ni. He was the central figure in a circle of Japanese poets after the Jōkyū War in 1221. His three sons were Nijō Tameuji, Kyōgoku Tamenori and Reizei Tamesuke. They each established rival families of poets—the Nijō, the Koyōgoku and the Reizei.[2]

Starting in 1250, Tameie was among those who held the ritsuryō office of chief administrator of the Ministry of Taxation (民部卿, Minbu-kyō).[3] In 1256, he abandoned public life to become a Buddhist monk, taking the name Minbukyō-nyūdō.[2]

Selected work[edit]

Tameie's published writings encompass 23 works in 28 publications in 1 language and 124 library holdings.[4]
