The Iwatsuki Domain (岩槻藩 Iwatsuki-han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. Located in Musashi Province (parts of modern-day Saitama Prefecture), it was headquartered in Iwatsuki Castle.

In the han system, Iwatsuki was a political and economic abstraction based on periodic cadastral surveys and projected agricultural yields.[1] In other words, the domain was defined in terms of kokudaka, not land area.[2] This was different from the feudalism of the West.
