Yoita Domain (与板藩 Yoita-han) was a fudai feudal domain under the Tokugawa shogunate of Edo period Japan. It is located in Echigo Province, Honshū. The domain was centered at Yoita Jin'ya, located in what is now part of the city of Nagaoka in Niigata Prefecture.
After a brief period as tenryō from 1689-1705.
During the Boshin War, the domain sided with the imperial side. In July 1871, with the abolition of the han system, Yoita Domain briefly became Yoita Prefecture, and was merged into the newly created Niigata Prefecture. Under the new Meiji government, Ii Naoyasu, the final daimyo of Yoita Domain was given the kazoku peerage title of shishaku (viscount), and later served as a member of the House of Peers.
Bakumatsu period holdings
As with most domains in the han system, Yoita Domain consisted of several discontinuous territories calculated to provide the assigned kokudaka, based on periodic cadastral surveys and projected agricultural yields.
