Romaji question[edit]

I know this is probably a common topic when it comes to English articles based on Japanese topics, but maybe it would be better to use the modified Hepburn romanization as compared to the Hyojun-shiki romanization. i.e. し would be "shi" and not "si." On the whole, it's a small problem (some would say it's not even a problem) but I think it would make the list easier to read and understand for those that don't know that much Japanese.

Bundled citations[edit]

A reliable source cite was deleted here. It was restored here.

This bundled cite format is used in many articles, including the 100+ articles about the Japanese emperors. The cross-referenced source cites are reasonable in the context of the Historiography of Japan. --Enkyo2 (talk) 01:11, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

You're not allowed bundle several sources that say different things (or some give more detail than others) and imply they all say the same thing. Hijiri 88 (やや) 04:19, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

"Traditional dates"[edit]

Does this refer to the traditionally ascribed dates to the legendary emperors? Or, as is implied by its use for emperors running into the 19th century, does it mean we are citing the dates in the traditional Japanese calendar? Titsingh appears to be cited for almost every instance of this phrase, but Titsingh clearly doesn't mention a lot of these specific dates, so is the source just for the statement that Japan has its own calendar and these are formatted to that? WP:JG also seems to imply that we need to include the Gregorian or Julian dates, although that's a minor issue. Hijiri 88 (やや) 14:02, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
