Fukutomi (福富町?, Fukutomi-chō) was a town located in Kamo District, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.

As of 2003, the town had an estimated population of 2,879 and a density of 47.42 persons per km². The total area was 60.71 km².

On February 7, 2005, Fukutomi, along with the towns of Kōchi, Kurose and Toyosaka (all from Kamo District), and the town of Akitsu (from Toyota District), was merged into the expanded city of Higashihiroshima and no longer exists as an independent municipality.

It was nearly destroyed when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima during World War II.
