土都
第五五号

The top line might be a contraction for two phrases. Separately means "earth" and means "metropolis/metroplitan/city" [maybe "City Land, #55"???]. I've run 土都 in the name database and it is not recognized as a name ... so I just don't know.

Bottom line:
第五五号

No. 55

And CURSE Google forever! I am *always* getting CHINESE-CHINESE-CHINESE when I search using Japanese/kanji. My wife says she has the same complaint. I sure wish I could filter out CHINESE unless I need CHINESE.

Ahhhh ... mini-rant over -- thanks.

Ha! Thanks Guy. The reason you get CHINESE-CHINESE-CHINESE is because they are trying to take over the free world and dominate in everything!
