Inaba Province (因幡国 Inaba-no kuni?) was an old province of Japan in the area that is today the eastern part of Tottori Prefecture.[1] It was sometimes called Inshū (因州?). Inaba bordered on Harima, Hōki, Mimasaka, and Tajima Provinces.

The ancient capital, and the castle town, were at Tottori city. Ube jinja was designated as the chief Shinto shrine (ichinomiya) for the province. [2]
