    Pong from Menlo Park! You’re moving fast, looks like. What’s Nikko? I thought it’s a brand of quality remote control toys (remember the red 4WD truck Granddad brought you from Japan umpteen years ago?)

    Nikko is a town that the Tokugawa shoguns used as a symbol of their power: there’s an enormous complex of shrines and temples there with very intricate ornamentation; all their vassals were required to send artisans in order to keep it in good condition. Its name means “sunlight” — appropriately Newspeak for the occasion.
