Mori Domain (母里藩 Mori-han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It was associated with Izumo Province in modern-day Shimane Prefecture.[1]

In the han system, Mori 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.


The domain was ruled for the entirety of its history by a branch of the Matsudaira clan of Fukui.
