The Nishio clan (西尾氏 Nishio-shi?) was a Japanese clan claiming descent from the Kira clan, a branch of the Seiwa Genji line. Kira Yoshitsugu, a son of Kira Mochihiro, served under Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu adopted the family name of Nishio. Under the Tokugawa shogunate, the clan ruled as fudai daimyō at Tsuchiura Domain (Hitachi Province) from 1617-1649, Tanaka Domain (Suruga Province) from 1649-1679, Komoro Domain (Shinano Province) from 1679-1682, and at Yokosuka Domain (Tōtōmi Province) from 1682-1868.

After the Meiji Restoration, the clan was transferred to the short-lived Hanabusa Domain in Awa Province, and was subsequently granted the kazoku title of viscount.
