Wakasa Domain (若桜藩 Wakasa-han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It was associated with Inaba Province in modern-day Tottori Prefecture.[1]

In the han system, Wakasa 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.

List of daimyo[edit]
