Toyohara Chikanobu (豊原周延), better known to his contemporaries as Yōshū Chikanobu (楊洲周延), was a prolific woodblock artist of Japan's Meiji period.

Chikanobu signed his artwork "Yōshū Chikanobu" (楊洲周延). This was his "art name". The artist's "real name" was Hashimoto Naoyoshi (橋本直義); and it was published in his obituary.
Many of his earliest works were signed "studio of Yōshū Chikanobu" (楊洲齋周延) Yōshū-sai Chikanobu; a small number of his early creations were simply signed "Yōshū" (楊洲). At least one triptych from 1879 exists signed "Yōshū Naoyoshi" (楊洲直義).
No works have surfaced that are signed either "Toyohara Chikanobu" or "Hashimoto Chikanobu".
