Takebe taisha (建部大社) is a Shinto shrine located in Ōtsu in Shiga Prefecture, Japan. The shrine was established in the 43rd year of the reign of the legendary Emperor Keiko (71–130 AD), shortly after the death of his son Yamato Takeru.

The shrine became the object of Imperial patronage during the early Heian period (794 to 1185) and it was accorded some attention during the Kamakura period (1185–1333).
