Tanaka Domain

Tanaka Domain (田中藩, Tanaka-han?) was a Japanese domain of the Edo period. It is associated with Suruga Province in modern-day Shizuoka Prefecture on the island of Honshu.

In the han system, Tanaka 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.

Famous quotes containing the word domain:

    When it had long since outgrown his purely medical implications and become a world movement which penetrated into every field of science and every domain of the intellect: literature, the history of art, religion and prehistory; mythology, folklore, pedagogy, and what not.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)
