[edit]

The image of Musashi Miyamoto killing a monster said the monster was a Nue. This is wrong. It is clearly not a Nue. Also, it says he's killing a shark right in the picture, so I've changed it to "shark." Please keep it this way.

[edit]

Following Wikipedia policy on article names (which says "What .. would the average user of the Wikipedia put into the search engine?") we have been listing Japanese woodblock prints artists under the names they are commonly known by in the West - which means we do not use their complete names (which are rarely used in the West, and for artists of this era change over time anyway). Please see Talk:Sharaku for an extended discussion on this topic. Please leave them where they are. Thank you. Noel 20:31, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC)

In the article: In this Japanese name, the family name is "Utagawa".
But here Kuniyoshi is listed as his family name.
