Yuda (湯田町 Yuda-machi?) was a town located in Waga District, Iwate Prefecture, Japan.


The village of Yuda created on April 1, 1889 within Nishiwaga District with the establishment of the municipality system. Nishiwaga merged with HIgashiwaga District to form Waga District on March 29, 1896. Yuda was raised to town status on August 1, 1964.
