Saw these signs all over the mountain expressways in the south of Kyushu. What the heck does R=###m mean?

I believe it is "radius", the length of the curve.

Radius isn't the length of the curve. :D

Not so much the length of the curve, but the curve's sharpness. The smaller the number, the tighter the curve.
