Ryūjō (Japanese: 龍驤, "prancing dragon") was a light aircraft carrier of the Imperial Japanese Navy. She was laid down by Mitsubishi at Yokohama in 1929, launched in 1931 and commissioned in 1933. Her small design — when launched she displaced only 8,000 tons — proved to be incapable of safe operation in heavy seas. Nonetheless, she was employed in operations in the Second Sino-Japanese War.
