Description

Suzuka Mountains (鈴鹿山脈, Suzuka Sanmyaku) are a mountain range running through Mie Prefecture and along the borders of Gifu and Shiga prefectures in central Japan. The tallest peak in the range is Mount Oike at 1,247 m (4,091 ft). In spite of its height, Mount Oike is not the most visited mountain; that distinction belongs to Mount Gozaisho because of its Gozaisho Ropeway, making reaching the peak much easier. Suzuka Quasi-National Park protects a portion of the mountain range from development and has a total area of 298 km2 (115 sq mi). The town of Komono, Mie Prefecture, has many onsen. The northern part consists of Limestone, and the southern part consists of Granite.
