Guy, thanks muchly for the help with that title.

Was 'Komachi' the name of a district, or what, does anyone happen to know? (I gather that it had come to mean 'beautiful woman', after Ono no Komachi, but I'm curious about where her name came from.) That last kanji ('machi') seems to only have meanings of location, so I would think that perhaps it is, but I wonder...

Noel
