The Yanagisawa clan were Edo period kunimochi daimyô of the 150,000 koku domain of Yamato-kôriyama.[1]

One notable lord of Kôriyama was Yanagisawa Nobutoki (1724-1792), who is known for his love of the kabuki theater and close social ties with many prominent actors.[2]

In the daimyô rankings by waiting room in Edo castle, the Yanagisawa were assigned to the Teikan-no-ma ("Hall of the Mirror of Emperors").[3]
