Did you all know today (August 11th) is a national holiday in Japan called Mountain Day?
Mt. Ryuo, located on the island of Takamishima in Tadotsu, was selected as one of the “Top Hundred Island Mountains!” It will be featured in the mountain climbing guidebook “Top Hundred Island Mountains” (しま山百選) which is currently being published by Mont-Bell, an outdoor goods manufacturer!
Mt. Ryuo can be climbed year round, but the best time is from winter throughout spring. If you decide to climb it during the summer, please be careful of heatstroke and harmful insects.
