So far in the back of beyond in fact that internet access became
distinctly spotty. But beautiful though. I hope the list won't mind
links to a few photos now that I'm back with the inlaws in not quite
such an back of beyond spot in Shimaneken


More links may appear.

Oh and in order to drag this ever so slightly back Bujoldwards.
Recalling that herself is looking for names & things Japanese may I
suggest the possibility of brothers called "Shinya" and "Junya" Shinya
sounds very much like Senior and I really thought the guy called Junya
was actually Junior until I saw it written in Kanji
