Mykonos Resort

1000: Mykonos Resort (Yoshioka)

The original title is "Resort Mansion in Mikonos", somewhat obscure because this is the Japanese usage of "Mansion" to mean (in this case) "holiday apartments." Each "room" features a number of cute characters in front of it, with a caption in Anglo-Japanese: some of the words are Japanese ('buta', for example, is 'pig'), others are English, but the grammar is Japanese (no plurals to be seen). One curiosity is the expression "Love2", pronounced raburabu; for example "Love2 rabbit" means approximately "Rabbits in love".

The location, of course, is the Greek island - it seems that 'Mykonos' is the usual spelling.
