The region of Usune is not listed on the map (Usune town in Numata city is a different region).

The village of Usune in Tone District existed until 1954, but its name disappeared from the map after it merged with other villages to become the city of Numata. Though no longer named on the map, the borders and culture of Usune village remain to this day.
