The Fukushima Domain (福島藩 Fukushima-han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period, located in southern Mutsu Province (modern-day Fukushima Prefecture). Castle location was the Fukushima Castle (福島城 Fukusima-jō?). Feudal lords were the Honda clan, the Hotta clan, and the Itakura clan. All of them were Fudai daimyos.
