Owari han was an Edo period domain ruled by the Owari Tokugawa clan, one of the three Gosanke branches of the main Tokugawa clan lineage of the first Tokugawa shoguns. Based at Nagoya castle, the domain boasted a kokudaka of 619,500 koku.[1]

The domain maintained two mansions in Edo: one at Kôjimachi (the neighborhood is now known as Kioi-chô), and one at Ichigaya. The grounds of the latter is today home to the Ministry of Defense.

Many of the treasures previously owned by the Tokugawa lords of Owari are today held in the Tokugawa Art Museum in Nagoya.
