The Sabae Domain (鯖江藩 Sabae-han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It is associated with Echizen Province in modern-day Fukui Prefecture on the island of Honshu.[1]

In the han system, Sabae 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 valued at 50,000 koku.[4]

At Sabae, Bankei-ji was as the family temple for the ruling Manabe clan. Its gate was built in 1849.[5]

List of daimyo[edit]

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