Japan's newest national holiday, "Yama no Hi" (Mountain Day) has started being celebrated every August 11 from this year of 2016. In commemoration of the establishment, Japanese figure maker Volks' comprehensive hobby building Volks Akihabara Hobby Paradise is now holding a time-limited event featuring the mountaineering-themed Yamano Susume/ Encouragement of Climb anime series on its seventh floor's event space from July 30 to August 14. The event displays life-size standees of the four main girls and various new merchandise using a newly drawn art for the event.
