Naniwa Nagara-Toyosaki Palace (難波長柄豊碕宮, Naniwa-no-Nagara-no-Toyosaki-no-miya), is a historical palace which was located in present-day central Osaka city, Japan. The palace of this period is also sometimes referred to as the Former Naniwa Palace (前期難波宮, zenki-Naniwa-no-miya), to contrast it with the (Latter) Naniwa Palace built in the same location in 744 AD.

Construction of the palace was completed in 652 AD; the palace stood for 34 years before being destroyed by fire in 686 AD.
