杉山林道 Sugiyama Rindo
Recently, when I go into the mountains, I always see snakes. All of them have been 'tiger keelbacks' (yamakagashi). At this time of year, they sunbathe in sunny spots. I saw 4 tiger keelbacks today. Tiger keelbacks are venomous snakes, so please look at the photos below and remember them so you can identify them.
