Hombu should be honbu[edit]

In this article, the word "hombu" is constantly used. I noticed that on the home page of the organization, they do the same thing and it is simply taken over from there to here on Wikipedia. Although the correct Japanese pronunciation sounds more like hombu than like honbu, according the Hepburn romanization the correct transcription for 本部 (ほんぶ) is honbu, with a syllabic n (ん). I think, to keep it up to Wikipedia standards, the Hepburn romanization should also be used in this article and all "hombu" should be changed into "honbu". Any objections from anybody? -- MarioR 23:07, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

No it should NOT
http://www.aikikai.or.jp/eng/hombu.htm is the home page of this organization. Hombu is "Hombu". This means that even the organization considers this their name.
You can also check at http://www.aikido-international.org/index.php?option=com_weblinks&view=category&id=2%3Aaikido&Itemid=23 which is International Aikikai Federation. And you can check at American Aikikai Federation [1] Then at AAA [2] And then at USAF [3]
Why? If it is done your way. It will be extremely difficult to find any information. No one uses that spelling. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.102.131.217 (talk) 16:44, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
That's crazy Mario, you can't change the name of something just because of your own prescriptivist ideals. The spelling was a choice, not an error. Hombu it must here stay because Hombu is what it actually is. Cesiumfrog (talk) 04:32, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

I think it would be a good idea to to have a comprehensive structured article on "aikikai", rather than what we currently have (with lots of duplicated content in this "aikikai hombu dojo" article and the article on aikido doshu). That way efforts will be less fragmented (at present these articles are all of stubish quality). Do people agree? Cesiumfrog (talk) 04:44, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

It makes sense to me. The Hombu could be a section in the Aikikai article. --83.188.196.6 (talk) 10:19, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
