Nakatsu Castle

Nakatsu Domain (中津藩 Nakatsu-han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It was associated with Buzen Province in modern-day Ōita Prefecture on the island of Kyushu. The domain was centered at Nakatsu Castle in what is now Nakatsu, Ōita.

In the han system, Nakatsu 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 daimyo[edit]
