Mount Iizuna (飯縄山, Iizuna-yama), also known as Mount Izuna (飯綱山, Izuna-yama), is a mountain located ten kilometers north-northwest of the heart of Nagano, Nagano Prefecture, Japan. Together with Mount Reisenji (霊仙寺山, Resenji-yama), Mount Menō (瑪瑙山, Menō-yama), and others, it forms the Iizuna range. It has an elevation of 1,917 metres.
This mountain is a sacred site for mountain-based religious sects such as Shugendo, and said to be the home of a tengu named Saburō. According to legend, there was once a strange, edible sand somewhere on the mountain, which the tengu would distribute in times of poor harvest.

The mountain is also a popular area for skiing and is where the bobsleigh and luge track for the 1998 Winter Olympics is located.
