Hello everyone! My forum name is athos_uo and this is my first post here.

Welcome Athos, your translations of the Japanese UO site are invaluable to the non Japanese UO community.

Thanks for warm replies and that you welcome me! I'll hand your comments to the organizer of this contest.

I'd like to continue informing you of Japanese things, important or interesting, as possible.

Thanks again for your wonderful comments! (It amazed and pleased me that someone replied in Japanese.)

What shard was this on may I ask?

I sometimes wander over to the Japanese shards (for inspiration with houses or on Asuka for the book fairs) and I'd love to see some of these closer!

"Japanese Castle" is located at 55.17N 27.33W on Izumo shard Felucca. You can find this location on "veterinary master".
Japanese Castle: http://vm.or.tp/?fe55o17N27o33W

The owner's site is here

His actual house is also the japanese castle, a little north to the location above. I suppose he was roleplaying as Japanese Samurai clan.

--

"The Fountain of Llama" is located at 104.25N 33.19W on Wakoku shard Trammel. You can find this location on "veterinary master".
The Fountain of Llama; http://vm.or.tp/?tr104o25N33o19W

The owner's site is Office-Popotum

I cannot find other two houses on Internet. I asked about where they are at RainyLain. If the owners agree to open their locations, I can introduce them to you, but I cannot know whether they do or not now. Please wait for a while.

Take care if you go to the locations above, it might be a little dangerous for brand new characters.

Looks like it will be worth a visit! That japanese castle is stunning and actually looks like one. I wish it could be bigger on the inside its more of the type of house you would appreciate on the outside and not the in.
