Campaign resources: Income by province

Here’s a list of incomes in koku per province in Japan in 1598. Bear in mind that the land surveys necessary for the assessment were completed after 8 years of peace and after Hideyoshi’s social reorganisation, so the situation during the actual Sengoku Jidai would have been different. However, the list serves as perhaps an optimum yield for each province, assuming full daimyō control over their vassals, land surveys and some improvement of infratstructure. In earlier times, some percentage of these totals could be used, and during a campaign, that percentage could rise depending on the province’s ruler increasing their control and providing infrastructural impprovements. Alternatively/additionally, the totals can be used as a way of providing a comparison between the relative wealth of provinces, all thing being equal.
