Kono Tamasumi (河野玉澄)

Tamasumi KONO was a Japanese military commander around the 7th century.

It is said that Tamasumi was a child born between Morioki OCHI, who went to the Battle of Hakusukinoe leading the Iyo navy, and a Chinese girl he met during the war.

Living in Kono-go, Kazahaya District, Iyo Province (modern Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture), he called himself Tamasumi KONO and he was first to use the name of KONO.

The tomb which is said to be his is in Koizumi, Imabari City, Ehime Prefecture.
