Kokura Castle

Kokura Domain (小倉藩 Kokura-han?)', also known as "Kawara-han" (香春藩?) or then "Toyotsu-han" (豊津藩?), was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It was associated with Buzen Province in modern-day Fukuoka Prefecture on the island of Kyushu.

In the han system, Kokura 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.

List of daimyo[edit]

The hereditary daimyo were head of the clan and head of the domain.
