The Iiyama Domain (飯山藩 Iiyama-han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It was associated with Shinano Province in modern-day Nagano Prefecture.[1]

In the han system, Iiyama was a political and economic abstraction based on periodic cadastral surveys and projected agricultural yields.[2] In other words, the domain was defined in terms of kokudaka, not land area.[3] This was different from the feudalism of the West.

History[edit]

It was the scene of fighting during the Echigo Campaign of the Boshin War, between the imperial army and mixed forces of the former Tokugawa Shogunate and Ouetsu Reppan Domei.

Iiyama was ruled by several different daimyo families over the course of its history.
