Cheryl Apr 15 2010 07:43 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Heh, that pic would work in the "something unexpected" topic!

Asia?

jube Apr 15 2010 05:43 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Yes to Tresa (Asia that is) and Cheryl, it could go into "Something unexpected" but NO to Australian-made, Micronesia or Bali. Mum said she'll be happy with the town, you'll find these in :D

jube Apr 16 2010 11:56 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Hans is correct with a YES for Japan :D Sorry it's NO to everyone else :(

Samsara Apr 17 2010 02:46 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
All right then.. lets start with the obvious.... Tokyo?

jube Apr 17 2010 06:19 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
No to Tokyo!

P'ter Apr 17 2010 08:44 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
It's the hot tub at Hinata House! :D

Prefecture of Hokaido?

Greenrider Tresa Apr 17 2010 04:08 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
South-southwest of a line drawn from Tokyo to Eukui?

jube Apr 18 2010 03:23 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
No to P'ter.

GT do you mean Fukui as there's no place like Eukui that I could find?? Anyway if your question is south of between Fukui and Tokyo, I'll give you a YES if I'm thinking that's what you meant :irk: Sorry *shrugs shoulders here*.

P'ter Apr 18 2010 08:45 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
within 50km of Kobe?

Greenrider Tresa Apr 18 2010 03:26 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Hmm, both Google Maps and a quick search confirmed the existence of Eukui. If you find Tokyo on Google maps then make a straight line west Eukui is on the opposite coast. Don't know, maybe they're the same city just translated differently, as it was kind of hard to read the names off the map.

And that works, though I was trying to account for the fact that the country curves south and west from there.



Due west of Osaka?

jube Apr 18 2010 08:07 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
No to both questions.

Psst ... my mum says please get your spelling correct, Fukui is the correct spelling and she should know, she spent time in Japan and sorry but I'm not going to disagree with my mum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukui,_Fukui) on this one if I can't find it. Sorry mate!

Hey Kugai: Hinata really exists! :D

Within 50km of Hiroshima?

jube Apr 19 2010 09:21 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
:D

No, wrong prefecture as well ;)

P'ter Apr 19 2010 01:11 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Island of Shikoku?

Greenrider Tresa Apr 19 2010 03:31 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Yes well I;'m sorry that my vision is so poor I couldn't tell the edge of the letter from the top of the characters under it. I also occasionally confuse m, nn, and rn.

jube Apr 19 2010 08:12 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Aaahhh now I understand GT, I'm sorry if there was any misunderstandings made as a result and hope I haven't upset you too much. Ooops on my behalf if that's the case. :(

P'ter ~ No.

They are very cute.

P'ter Apr 20 2010 04:02 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Are they a memorial to a particular event?

Greenrider Tresa Apr 20 2010 03:49 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
It's all right, jube. Just take it never to assume a misspelling is due to a simple enability to spell. ;)

City on the coast?

jube Apr 20 2010 06:26 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Yes to memorial.

No to being on the coast.




:ot:

GT - :blush: oops again - I suppose it's a case of knowing about Ginnystar's problems with reading small-print etc but not about everyone else unless it comes up in conversation. My appologies again.

P'ter Apr 21 2010 03:01 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Well it doean't match the memorials at Nagasaki or Hiroshima.

Kyoto?

jube Apr 21 2010 10:38 PM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
No to Kyoto. Sometimes memorials can be little things too :nod: ~ think outside the square and hopefully you'll get it.

P'ter Apr 22 2010 04:12 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
Okay: memorial to dead babies, but where?

Fukuoka Province?

jube Apr 22 2010 09:36 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
No and I can't answer where ;)

P'ter Apr 22 2010 11:05 AM

Re: Where in the world #258
 
I know that: it was retorical (I hope)
