Ogi Domain

Ogi Domain

Ogi Domain (小城藩, Ogi-han?) was a Japanese domain in the Edo period. It is associated with Hizen Province in modern-day Saga Prefecture on the island of Kyūshū.

In the han system, Ogi was a political and economic abstraction based on periodic cadastral surveys and projected agricultural yields. In other words, the domain was defined in terms of kokudaka, not land area. This was different than the feudalism of the West.
