The Okayama Domain (岡山藩 Okayama han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It was associated with Bizen Province in modern-day Okayama Prefecture.[1]

In the han system, Okayama was a political and economic abstraction based on periodic cadastral surveys and projected agricultural yields.[2] In other words, the domain was defined in terms of kokudaka, not land area.[3] This was different from the feudalism of the West.

History[edit]

The domain sided with the Kyoto government during the Boshin War.[citation needed]
