Mimasaka Province (美作国 Mimasaka no kuni?) or Sakushu (作州 Sakushū?) was a province of Japan in the part of Honshū that is today northeastern Okayama Prefecture. Mimasaka bordered Bitchū, Bizen, Harima, Hōki, and Inaba Provinces.
In the 3rd month of the 6th year of the Wadō era (713), the land of Mimasaka no kuni was administratively separated from Bizen Province. In that same year, Empress Gemmei's Daijō-kan continued to organize other cadastral changes in the provincial map of the Nara Period.
