Kumakōgen (久万高原町, Kumakōgen-chō) is a town in Kamiukena District, Ehime Prefecture, Japan.

The town was formed on August 1, 2004 from the merger of the town of Kuma, and the villages of Mikawa, Omogo and Yanadani, all from Kamiukena District.

Geography[edit]

Mount Ishizuchi, the tallest mountain in Shikoku at 1982 m is located on the border between Seiyo to the northeast. Because the town is very mountainous, settlements are located along the Omogo River (Niyodo River). The climate is cool and wet in the summer and winters cold with snow.[2]
