Thank you!

駅長:station master, Train Station Master, Train Stationmaster.

I wrote: train station supervisor, train station manager.

Maybe it’s cultural thing more specific to Japan? I’m not used to “master” as part of a professional title. English isn’t my first language though even though I’m fluent I think. Just wondering.

Isn’t the train station manager the same as the station master?

@JenK ?

Also, regarding 大仏 wouldn’t “big” buddha statue also work? Does it need to be “giant” to be accepted?
