Kochi picture[edit]

If you upload it as a different image name and credit me with the original photo, I don't think it should be a problem--Nobunaga24 (talk) 15:05, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

I thank you heartily.--663highland (talk) 16:57, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Shinto shrine[edit]

I reverted the three changes you made to Shinto shrine as vandalism. If you modify an article, you MUST say why. Please leave your reasons in the discussion page. The photo of Moto Hachiman was there for a reason. I wanted to show that a haiden is not necessary in a shrine. urashimataro (talk) 05:46, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

The photo of Moto Hachiman is thought that this image is improper to represent the Shinto shrine. --663highland (talk) 07:24, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

写真は神社の定義の一部です。神社の基本的な構造はどれか示すように、わざとできるだけシンブルな神社の写真を選びました。663highlandの写真はそれにふさわしくないです。 urashimataro (talk) 08:40, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

そのような理由であるなら、urashimataroさんの写真は、鳥居の一部も拝殿も隠れています。ならば、Image:Tosa-jinja01s3872.jpgの方が相応しいと思われませんか?--663highland (talk) 08:48, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Ishinpō[edit]

Hello. I undid this edit of yours and added a resource supporting it. You can go to the library to verify if you wish, but I will give you the full citation. 『訓点語辞典』, 2001 by 吉田金彦 and others, page 192:「医心方 三十巻一冊 東京国立博物館蔵 (国宝) 本資料は、「半井本医心方」と称され、昭和五十八年に国宝に指定されて[略].

Hello Mr. Bendono. Thank you for explaining. --663highland (talk) 15:39, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Category National Treasure of Japan[edit]

Hi! Thank you for adding articles on shrines and temples to Category:National Treasures of Japan. I also noticed that you removed this category from some articles (for instance Kamakura Museum of National Treasures). I believe that your reasoning is, that the museum itself is not a National Treasure, which is of course correct. On the other hand, the temple Hokki-ji itself is not a National Treasure either. Only the pagoda of the temple is. To be precise, only the (yet unwritten) Hokki-ji pagoda article would belong into the Category:National Treasures of Japan. In my view these two cases are somewhat similar: a national treasure is "housed" in a museum or "housed" (part of) a temple. Personally I'd favour a categorization as on the Japanese wikipedia with categories: Category:National Treasures of Japan (temples), Category:National Treasures of Japan (paintings) and so on. A while ago I asked this question (how to categorize museums that have national treasures?) over here. Only User:Nihonjoe replied and suggested to have just one category (Category:National Treasures of Japan) and have museums, temples, shrines, universities,... in this category if they have national treasures. It should then be explained in the article text what kind of objects are National Treasures. bamse (talk) 18:18, 28 November 2009 (UTC) What do you think about Nihonjoe's proposal? bamse (talk) 18:19, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Hello Mr.Bamse. Because the Pagoda of Hokki-ji is a building (real estate) in the temple, Hokki-ji is Japan's National Treasure. However, the personal property is not so it.
In Japanese Wikipedia, it makes it to the classification such as Category:National Treasures of Japan (architectures), Category:National Treasures of Japan (paintings) and Category:National Treasures of Japan (sculptures).
I will oppose the classification named Category:National Treasures of Japan (temples), and Category:National Treasures of Japan (shrines). It is because the caused confusion is imagined because Category:National Treasures of Japan (paintings) that the temple owns and Category:National Treasures of Japan (paintings) that the shrines owns exist. --663highland (talk) 23:56, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
Hello! I cannot follow your logic, when you say that because a part (pagoda) of an entity (Hokki-ji) is a National Treasure, the entity (Hokki-ji) is a National Treasure itself. If that was the case, why does the MEXT bother to nominate separate structures at one temple (for instance the kondō, kyōzō, 鐘楼, ... at Hōryū-ji)? They could just nominate the temple (Hōryū-ji) as national treasure.
I don't see why it is a problem to have articles on shrines and articles on temples in the proposed Category:National Treasures of Japan (paintings). It would be fine with me to join the proposed Category:National Treasures of Japan (temples) and Category:National Treasures of Japan (shrines) into one category Category:National Treasures of Japan (architecture) (or Category:National Treasures of Japan (structures)) as on the Japanese wikipedia.bamse (talk) 10:18, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Hello Mr.Bamse. I will understand the point that you cannot agree. However, I want you to think about the purpose of the category division. In general, the national treasure building is recognized by the name of the temple where it is owned. The number of national treasure buildings is about 215. That is, it is important. The number of owners is much less than 215. I do not think that there is a necessity for subdividing the category of the national treasure building.
For your information, in Japanses Wikipedia, it becomes like Category talk:National Treasures of Japan#Case in Japanses Wikipedia.--663highland (talk) 11:22, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the list of corresponding Japanese categories.bamse (talk) 12:13, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for reading my poor English.--663highland (talk) 13:01, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Quick question about your photo[edit]

In the image found at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Old_Toshima_House07s3200.jpg What is the vent-like structure in the wall on the right side wall? Xowgax (talk) 07:57, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Hello. It is a name of "Ranma". As for a lot of "Ranma", the sculpture is set. --663highland (talk) 15:06, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, please delete this message if you like. Xowgax (talk) 19:44, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Sorry to interfere. I think Xowgax meant the lower structure which is attached to the wall (or sliding door) just above the lamp. As far as I understand this explanation, a ranma (欄間) is the structure at the top above the door/wall. I marked the ranma with an image annotation. I would also like to know what the lower vent-like structure is, since I don't remember having seen anything like it before.bamse (talk) 20:17, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much for following it. --663highland (talk) 14:37, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
Do you know what the lower structure is? bamse (talk) 15:04, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
I do not know. However, I think that it is a kind of "Fusuma". It is an unusual structure. --663highland (talk) 15:10, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
Sorry to butt in. It's called genji busuma/源氏襖. See [1] and [2]. Oda Mari (talk) 07:31, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank you.bamse (talk) 08:35, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Do you know why this list has 2 national sculptures in Tokyo? I only know this sculpture. What is the second sculpture? bamse (talk) 18:34, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

The sculpture of the national treasure that exists in Tokyo must be only one. I believed so... --663highland (talk) 11:30, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Solved by Oda Mari. See Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Japan#Did_the_Agency_for_Cultural_Affairs_make_a_mistake.3F here. bamse (talk) 15:25, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
I see. I think that your inquiring minds are wonderful. --663highland (talk) 12:22, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

高千穂河原について[edit]

You linked Takachiho-gawara on the Shinto page, but there is no article for it on en.wikipedia. I checked ja:高千穂河原 but there is not much there... If you write one, I will help you with the English grammar and vocabulary. Thank you! Shii (tock) 07:09, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I think that it is appropriate that ja:天孫降臨 translates earlier than ja:高千穂河原.
ja:天孫降臨 means "God's advent" or "King advent", and the place where it occurs is ja:高千穂河原 (Takachiho-gawara). However, it is difficult in my present English language skill to translate it. Thank you very much. --663highland (talk) 13:34, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I understand. I will try to translate both articles myself, when I have the time. Thank you for explaining. Shii (tock) 15:27, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Wakamatsu Park Nagata-ku Kobe03nLR.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Wakamatsu Park Nagata-ku Kobe03nLR.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

We wanted to let you know that we've used one of your pictures in a project of ours: http://litpics.tumblr.com/post/16660557547/lit-hildegardes-harvest-by-laura-elizabeth-howe

We created a computer program to generate random pairings of sentences from public domain texts and public domain / creative commons images. Some of the pictures we've selected come from the Wikipedia Commons. All the pictures we select ourselves, but the pairings and the text are random. Of these pairings that are generated, we only post the most interesting combinations.

We welcome any feedback about our site.

英語日本語翻訳校正のお願い[edit]

こんにちは、663highlandさん

忙しいですか?Angkor Watの和訳をご完成いたしましたけど、一つのお願いがあります。多分今ご覧になっているように、私は日本語が母国語ではなく、和訳された記事を校正していただきたいと思います。あまり迷惑が懸からないことを祈ります。

先週、すでにウィキペディア日本語版のユーザーにご連絡いたしましたけど、そのうち二人は丁重に断り、その他はまだ返信していません。

原文はウィキペディア英語版の秀逸な記事ですが、訂正をたくさんいたしました。2005年に秀逸な記事として指定されましたから、時代遅れな情報がありますし、引用方式も雑然としていますし。とにかく、各陳述を自分でご検証いたして、この日本語版はもっと上質だと思います。今は文章の質は唯一の問題です。校正後、実際のアンコール・ワットの記事に移転いして秀逸な記事の選考に推薦するつもりでございます。

既存の日本語版アンコール・ワットに接合するのを私に任せてください。もちろん、以前に他のユーザーと合意を形成してみますが、ja:アンコール・ワットja:プロジェクト:建築ja:プロジェクト:仏教の三つは全部が休止中ですから、論争を招くと思いません。

もし校正する気があるなら、ご連絡ください。

ご読了ありがとうございました。舎利弗 (talk) 20:02, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
