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:

    Every sign is subject to the criteria of ideological evaluation.... The domain of ideology coincides with the domain of signs. They equate with one another. Wherever a sign is present, ideology is present, too. Everything ideological possesses semiotic value.
    —V.N. (Valintin Nikolaevic)
