Japan names stones (and I mean stones that make Tokdo look like an island)

Apparently the ever-diligent Japanese are identifying specks that appear on satellite photos and christening them in that very popular on-going board game of that region, “Namers Keepers” (for age 3+)

That number includes only islands with a circumference of at least 100 meters, or yards. Islands can, in fact, be smaller.

And how about that China? Naming 71 islands in retaliation in one day – that’s pretty impressive.
Although the Japanese have come up with some great names themselves, I suggest for clarity, and to avoid any future confusion, the following : “Takeshima daiichi, daini, daisan, daiyon..so on “. I hear it was a popular name once.

    Yuna,

    That is ‘daiyon’ I think you want, not some yoghurt name or new type of noodle.

    Thanks Cactus for the pointing out of the typo.
    Fixed.

    What is the point of this article? Other than a juvenile attack on Japan of course.

  • yuna

    Exactly what I want to know. Ask the WSJ.

  • SalarymaninSeoul

    is this article juvenile or is Japan juvenile? I say Japan.

    #6,

    Speaking of which, that’s an awfully catty comment. You have your Midol yet?

    #2,

    You know I’d have emailed you privately if I could have done so, rather than pointing out that little ‘nama mugi nama gome nama tama go’ in public.

    #7 That’s OK Cactus, I’ve grown a pair since being asked to be a guest blogger. I dish occasionally, so I take.
    #8 Not at all. You can always let me know of any typos or misusage.

    Beware reporting the activities of the Japanese coast guard lest you be subjected to the Internet equivalent of hissing and scratching.

    besides Cactus – I was just playing with her quote

    What do you think Marmots Hole is?
    It’s just Robert ‘Christopher Robbin’ Koehler’s large doll house I get to play with.

    seeing this Hole now as a dollhouse – all makes sense.
