moon, but also a lot for the sun, mostly of them being reserved for
names, compounds and the like, poetry and such (off-hand, I
in 'Nihon': Japan, 'nichi' in 'nichiyoubi': Sunday, 'Ohiko'
and 'Taiyou' that
I've seen used as personal names, and of course 'Amaterasu', the Sun
Also, there's a place called Hyuuga ("úü ShiftJIS) that has an
