The nihongo|Ibi River|揖斐川|Ibi-gawa is a tributary of the Kiso River located in Gifu and Mie Prefectures in Japan. Along with the Nagara and Kiso rivers, the Ibi is the third of the Kiso Three Rivers of the Nōbi Plain. It is one of Japan's first class rivers. The former Tōkaidō post station of Kuwana-juku was located on the western banks of this river during the Edo period.

Geography

The Ibi River has its source in Mount Kanmuri, [http://www.water.go.jp/chubu/tokuyama/outline/o-ichi.html Tokuyama Dam and the Ibi River] . ja icon Japan Water Agency. Accessed June 27, 2008.] which is located in the town of Ibigawa in Gifu Prefecture, and from there flows south. During its course, it temporarily merges with the Kiso and Nagara Rivers. In the city of Kuwana, Mie Prefecture, it finally joins with the Nagara River for good and continues flowing until Ise Bay.
