Mount Nōtori (農鳥岳 Nōtori-dake?), or Nōtoridake, is one of the major peaks in the Akaishi Mountains, along with Mount Kita and Mount Aino. The 3,026 m (9,928 ft) peak lies to the south of the other mountains, spanning the town of Hayakawa in Yamanashi Prefecture and Aoi-ku in the city of Shizuoka, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.
The top of the mountain is divided into two peaks. The southeastern peak, known as Mount Nōtori, is 3,026 m (9,928 ft), while the northwestern peak, known as Mount Nishinōtori (西農鳥岳 Nishinōtori-dake?), is 3,051 m (10,010 ft). It is located in the Minami Alps National Park.
The main mountains of the Akaishi Mountains are Mount Kitadake, Mount Aino and Mount Nōtori. The three mountains together are called "Shiranesanzan" (白根三山 Shiranesanzan?), which means "three white summits".
