Hi! I am working for a textbook publishing company. We would like to include the photo of Tataragi Dam posted on this webpage: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tataragi_Dam01n4272.jpg. We would appreciate if you could send us a message on this email address: email@example.com. Thanks!
I am currently researching sources for the Munehisa Homma article
I need references to his books written in Japanese.
I also need to know what ids the correct way to write his name in English.
Anything you can help with to beef up the article.
Can you help?

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)
- 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)
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].

Category National Treasure of Japan
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)
Quick question about your photo
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)
- 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)
- 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)
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)

Non-free rationale for File:Wakamatsu Park Nagata-ku Kobe03nLR.jpg
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. Thank you. (Talk) 23:27, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

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.
Thanks for sharing your pictures,

Thank You for the Wikipedia Picture
Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Byodo-in_in_Uji.jpg). I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:
I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/index.htm
2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/usa/index.htm
3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/lessons/index.htm Slang Dictionary link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/slang/Eslang_a.htm
Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.
Please share this free site with your friends. I hope all will enjoy the pictures and find the English information useful. Sincerely, Duane Hurst in Utah, USA

Keiyō Line top image
Hi. I noticed that you changed the images in the Keiyō Line article recently. While I can understand that you might be keen to have a photo you took yourself at the top, were you aware that the image you replaced (this image) was nominated as a "Quality Image" on Commons? As such, I think it is a better choice of top image compared with the image you added, which shows the rear end of a train (note the red tail lights). If you think you have a better quality image, you could discuss it on the article's Talk page. Thanks. --DAJF (talk) 12:13, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
- Hi. I see. But This image isn't a image for the E233-5000 series. This image is a image for Keiyō Line. Thank you.--663highland (talk) 12:36, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks for adding a more recent image to the Shin-Aomori Station article. Please don't forget also to update the corresponding image caption to match the image. --DAJF (talk) 23:35, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
