祭り.jp

祭り.jp Matsuri. Festival. Would 祭.jp have been better?

Re: 祭り.jp

You have the correct term.

祭 reads 'matsu' and り is 'ri'.

Re: 祭り.jp

Thank you! How about forms like お祭り? Do you think that the honorific お is appropriate for domain names?

Re: 祭り.jp

お祭り and 祭り are both used. Doing a quick search shows that the latter seems to be used alot more.

The honorific is added as a matter of established use -- there are no easy rules for it. Some words are always in honorific form like, お金 (okane) and お茶 (ocha).

So yes, they are appropriate in domain names; if you wanted to say money, or okane, you would use お金, as I don't think anyone ever says kane. In fact, 金 changes meaning without the honorific and reads 'kin' or gold.

Good one! Did you grab that one a while ago? I regged 祭り.net back in early February I think and I don't believe that the .jp was available.

Re: 祭り.jp

Thank you!

Just last week. Got お祭り today.

Gion Matsuri wasn't available. But 祭り was. I'm always surprised when the more specific term is taken but the generic one is available.
