Iwashiro Province (岩代国 Iwashiro-no kuni?) is an old province in the area of Fukushima Prefecture on the island of Honshū.[1] It was sometimes called Ōshū (奥州?).[2] The history of the province started in 1868 and ended in 1872.


In the Meiji period, the provinces of Japan were converted into prefectures. The maps of Japan and Iashiro Province were reformed in the 1870s.[3]
