Kumao Imoto (1903 in Yamaguchi Prefecture - 2000) (井本熊男) was a Japanese military officer.
Imoto logged fatal experiments with cyanide gas as a weapon in 1942. He delivered the evacuation orders to the Japanese Seventeenth Army in Guadalcanal in the Pacific theatre of the Second World War (Operation Ke). The withdrawal was largely successful.
He wrote The Great East Asian War, written as an Operations Diary (Dai Toa Senso Sakusen Nisshi) published in 1979.
