Murakami Domain (村上藩, Murakami-han) was a feudal domain under the Tokugawa shogunate of Edo period Japan, located in Echigo Province (modern-day Niigata Prefecture), Japan. It was centered on Murakami Castle in what is now the city of Murakami, Niigata.[1]

History[edit]

Holdings at the end of the Edo period[edit]

As with most domains in the han system, Murakami Domain consisted of several discontinuous territories calculated to provide the assigned kokudaka, based on periodic cadastral surveys and projected agricultural yields.[2][3]

  • Echigo Province
    • 30 villages in Mishima District
    • 81 villages in Iwafune District
    • 83 villages in Kambara District
