Miike Domain (三池藩, Miike-han) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It was associated with Chikugo Province in modern-day Fukuoka Prefecture on the island of Kyushu.

In the han system, Miike 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.

List of daimyōs[edit]

The hereditary daimyōs were head of the clan and head of the domain.
