Kōzuke Province (上野国 Kōzuke no kuni?) was an old province located in the Tōsandō of Japan, which today comprises Gunma Prefecture. It is often nicknamed Jōshū (上州?) or Jōmō (上毛?). Kōzuke and Echigo Province were known as the Jōetsu region.
The ancient provincial capital of Takasaki was near modern Maebashi. During the Sengoku period, Kōzuke was controlled variously by Takeda Shingen, Uesugi Kenshin, the late Hōjō clan, and Tokugawa Ieyasu.
