Furumaki (古巻村, Furumaki-mura) was a village located in Gunma, Japan during the years 1889 to 1954.


Furumaki Village was formed in 1889 as a result of the merging of three villages: Arima Village, Handa Village, and Yagihara Village. On April 1, 1954, Furumaki Village merged with Kanashima Village, Shibukawa Town, and Toyoaki Village to become Shibukawa City.


The area formerly held as Furumaki Village is now a part of Shibukawa City, and the name of the former village is retained in the name of an elementary school and a junior high school.
