Tsunemitsu Kaneko (金子常光; fl. c. 1930 - 1960) was a Chinese-Japanese illustrator and painter of birds-eye views active during the Taisho and Showa periods. He was initially an apprentice to and later the primary rival of the famous birds-eye view maker Hatsu Saburo Yoshida (1884 - 1955). Kaneko is particularly known for his majestic parallel perspective views of Taiwan and Taiwanese cities. He was an editor for the Katsuyama house. Most of his work follows strongly in the mold of the aforementioned Yoshida, who pioneered the use of colorful chromolithograph parallel perspective birds-eye views to illustrate Japanese transportation networks.
