Okuyama Tomotoshi served as a bushō during the Sengoku period.  A powerful figure from a cadet family of the Ii, Tomotoshi came from Iinoya in the Inasa District of Tōtōmi Province.  He was also known as Chikahide.

Tomotoshi was a relative of the Ii clan who governed Iinoya.  Many of his daughter wed members of the Ii family and their retainers.  He was the maternal grandfather of Ii Naomasa.

Tomotoshi was assassinated by Ono Michiyoshi either toward the end of 1560 (the year that Imagawa Yoshimoto was killed at the Battle of Okehazama) or at the end of 1562.
