Kameyama-juku (亀山宿? Kameyama-juku) was the forty-sixth of the fifty-three stations (shukuba) of the Tōkaidō. It is located in former Ise Province in what is now part of the city of Kameyama, Mie Prefecture, Japan.
The classic ukiyoe print by Ando Hiroshige (Hoeido edition) from 1831-1834 depicts travelers climbing a steep snow-covered hillside to the entrance of Kameyama Castle, which appears to be towering over the post station village.
