Nemuro is a province of Ezo, formed in 1897 as a branch of the Hoccaidò Agency (an Imperial agency promoting colonization of Hoccaidò, as Ezo Island was known at the time). In 1903, the Xana branch was merged with Nemuro. It became a province shortly after the establishment of the breakaway Republic of Ezo. The capital is the town of Nemuro in Nemuro district.

In Ainu, its name is Ni Mu Oro.
