◆Please be aware that there are two TATEYAMAs in Japan.
One is in Chiba Prefecture, and the other is in Toyama Prefecture.
Since they are both written as “Tateyama” in English, it can be easy to confuse them.
Furthermore, there are also two ITOs.
One is in Tateyama City, Chiba Prefecture, and the other is in Ito City, Shizuoka Prefecture.
Although they have different kanji characters and pronunciations in Japanese, they are written as “Ito” in English.
