Map of Japan, 1871 -- Some of the old boundary lines were kept when reform created the prefectures.

The List of Han or domains in the Tokugawa period was changed from time to time during the Edo period. Han were feudal domains that formed the effective basis of administration in Tokugawa-era Japan. The han are given along with their approximate borders compared with the modern prefecture system.

The han system was abolished by the Meiji government in 1871.
