The Kobe mole (Mogera kobeae) is a species of mammal in the family Talpidae. It is endemic to a number of islands in central and southern Japan.

At least one researcher considers M. kobeae and the large mole (M. robusta) to be the same species. Further research is necessary to determine the correct taxonomic classification.
