Kameyama (亀山市, Kameyama-shi) is a Japanese city in Mie Prefecture on the island of Honshū.

History[change | change source]

In the Edo period, Kameyama-juku, Seki-juku and Sakanoshita-juku were the 46th, 47th and 48th of the 53 shogunate-maintained waystations (shuku-eki) along the Tōkaidō road which connected Edo and Kyoto.[1] All three Tōkaidō rest stops are within the boundaries of modern Numazu.
