“Re the series , ShonanDaira— Shonan is the name for this seaside region on the backside of Sagami Bay which is essentially the outer chamber of Tokyo Bay. Daira is a word that usually means plane or plateau (the Chinese character also means ‘flat’) but I think here can be translated into ‘butte.’ Yah, that sounds right, Shonan Butte.”
