The present Doodle remembers Japan’s Mountain Day (山の日), a national occasion to pay tribute to the topographical miracles of the Japanese archipelago. This year the occasion is seen on August 10, at first proposed to match with the day after the end service of the Olympic Games, yet is customarily praised every year on the eleventh day of the eighth month. Many view imagery in the August 11 date, as the Japanese character for 8—八—takes after the sides of a mountain, and the numeral 11 seems as though two trees, as represented in the Doodle work of art.
Japan’s geography has been etched by a huge number of long stretches of structural movement. The outcome is one of the world’s most shocking assortments of pinnacles, which incorporates more than 100 dynamic volcanoes. With more than 80 percent of the nation shrouded in bumpy territory, the Japanese government chose in 2016 to commit a whole day to its transcending scene.
Many celebrate by visiting one of Japan’s numerous pinnacles and appreciating a peaceful climb in nature, or respecting their quiet magnificence from a remote place.
Happy Mountain Day, Japan!
