Mineyama Domain (峯山藩 Mineyama han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo Period. It was associated with Tango Province in modern-day Kyoto Prefecture.[1]

In the han system, Mineyama 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.
