In the han system, Komoro was a political and economic abstraction based on periodic cadastral surveys and projected agricultural yields. In other words, the domain was defined in terms of kokudaka, not land area. This was different from the feudalism of the West.
The center of the domain was at Komoro Castle.
In 1590, Ina Tadatsugu was established in Musashi Province at Komoro Domain with 13,000 koku revenues. After the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600, the han was increased to 20,000 koku. However, the clan was dispossessed in 1613 because of Ina Tadamasa's part in a plot organized by Okubo Nagayasu.
