    Hi everyone
    I recently got addicted too. I aquired some stones directly from japan and was sometimes puzzled by the funny googletranslation. Maybe you could help me out. Of course "nest plate" is suita, "zhongshan" is sometime nakayama, "Wheel" is whetstone, "crow" is karasu and so on.
    But was is:
    Iris
    nitta subang
    motoyama
    ...

    Could someone help me here?

    Thans a lot
    Benjamin

    And from what I can see from pictures Nitta Subang is probable either Okudo or Shinden Suita

    Haha, yes. You probably know, but the trouble is auto-translations of Japanese work very poorly and we often get the literal meanings of the kanji. Kanji can also have different pronunciations and implications.

    'Iris' = Shobu 菖
    'Nitta subang' = Shinden suita 新田巣板
    'Motoyama' = Honyama 本山

    I have no idea what 'subang' is supposed to mean (in Indonesian/Malay it means 'earring') or why some things ('zhongshan' for example) are translated into Chinese and not English. It's not easy, and big advantage if you can actually read some of the Japanese. Probably why few people on KKF look to buy this way.

    What is Kiita?

    Here are some of my stones that *might* be kiita:

    "kiita" roughly translates to yellow plate or something like that, but I've read that it ranges from lime green to all shades of yellow... so my question is this. Does kiita refer to any particular strata? Is it just from the namito layer? Can suita stones be classified as kiita? Tomae stones? Or is it purly used to describe the color?

    Which of these (if any) would be considered kiita?
