The Kushida River (櫛田川 Kushida-gawa?) is a major river that flows through central Mie Prefecture on the island of Honshū, Japan. It is officially classified as a Class 1 river by the Japanese government, one of four Class 1 rivers that flow solely through Mie. The majority of river's course is through the city of Matsusaka. The river's source is on Mount Takami, which stands on the border of Mie and Nara Prefectures. From the mountain, it then flows eastwards and passes through a number of dams before reaching its delta and flowing into Ise Bay.
