The Tatebayashi Domain (館林藩 Tatebayashi-han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period, located in Kōzuke Province (modern-day Tatebayashi, Gunma).

In the han system, Tatebayashi 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.
