Japan's Tochigi Prefecture is spearheading an effort to create a new annual public holiday for landlocked Japanese regions, to be called Mountain Day.

The choice of the name Mountain Day is in analogy to the Marine Day Japanese public holiday whereby, on the third Monday in July, people are encouraged to take a trip to the beach.
