i guess this is not the correct site i should be asking for assistance, this is a hostile site and for sure my questions will not be entertained. please direct me to the right page where somebody can furnish me signs and markings of Japanese characters and the interpretations. i think i located a prospective area where there are japanese markings and land marks. thank you

Hey  Ram, I dont know how you can know there is no yam treasure? Do you not think the Japs
 while on the war parth would be taking all the gold they can (usually it's the case when going to war) thats how you pay the bills... spoils of war...
 Remember lots of Japs were killed also, & dead men don't tell tales  Fight

 I still don't follow how a Tokyo museum will help find the yam treasure? There could be some  good info there, probably locked away in a back room. I'm sure it would be an interesting museum anyways.
 I'm starting to think it could be a good idea Cool not a cheep place to visit though.

Au Ive been to Japan So know a bit about them. Interesting place, great food and temples...
 I didn't  get to Tokyo. I went to a Ninja Museum, that was interesting  Cool

Then look up their web site and some of the things on display on the web and then take pictures and send them to them and see what
they say, The point is this web site is a western web site and people from that part of the world looking for ansewers come on here
expecting us to agree with them, and i'm sorry to say this but we just dont know enough about their culture to be of help and then there are peolpe that in the past have tried to run scams on here who instead of teaching us about their culture they distroy the topic
because of their own agenda, I wish we could help but the knowledge just is'nt there

To ALL posters to this topic and to any other topic on THunting.com-----

     "Jap" is considered a pejorative term for Japanese and will not be tolerated any more than would pejoratives for Germans, Jews, Blacks, Hispanics, Chinese, Arabs, or any other group.   Unless you are literally quoting/reproducing a historical record, do NOT use that word.   The acceptable terms include "Japanese", members of the "Japanese armed forces", etc.

 HI BA
 I didn't mean to offend anyone. Also in my defence Jap and Jap's is what Japanese were called
 during the war, and I was using that term in context to that period, as in historical record. Also I was just feeling a bit lazy. Not much sleep the night before. Anyways I have taken note &
 will use Japanese in future. I Also find that term to be offencive, depending on the context.
 

Posted on: February 18, 2011, 09:28:32 PM
Sorry Seldom, No offence was intended

 I have a few Japanese friends myself. Its commonly used here where im from, In NewZealand
 we get a lot of Japanese cars and the term J.. Import is used widely on radio and tv.
 Have a nice day all Thunters.
  Cool Cool

Posted on: February 18, 2011, 09:33:27 PM
Sorry again, Ive probly made a mistake in saying that that term is widely used here
 in NZ on radio and tv. Only now and then, on the odd occasion.

  That's why there is an exception made for quoting specific historic sources.
  It does no one any good to censor original material, but on the other hand just because a term was used in the past it doesn't make it right for us to use it in our own communications today.    I know yours was a slip of the fingers, but there are enough new users that they needed to know what the policy is so they don't use the term casually.

   Its an abbreviation of Japanese. I think the context its used can be offencive.
 But if were talking cars, J.. Import is fine here in NewZealand and Australia in my opinion.
 
 Perhaps in America its considered a bit more offencive? Probly due to happenings around
 ww2.
 Is it offencive to call Turkish people Turks ?
 Anyways I'll stick with Japanese while on this site   Cool
