Suwa Domain (諏訪藩 Suwa-han?), also called Takashima Domain (高島藩 Takashima-han?),[1] was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It was associated with Shinano Province in modern-day Nagano Prefecture.

In the han system, Suwa 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.
