Ryūō (竜王) is a town in Shiga, Japan. It is located in south of Omihachiman.


The name literally means "Dragon King". The city is best known today for its outlet mall and the large Daihatsu car factory, but it was once a stop along the Tosando Road (東山道) which connected Kyoto with the Tohoku Region. The station here was Kagami no Shuku (鏡宿).
