For crimsonbadmojo

I'm afraid the answer will turn out to be a litle bit long. The fact is that 藍道日本 has no meaning. In Japanese it sounds "ai michi nihon", 1st character "ai" means indigo, 2nd character "do" means way or way of smth (like judo or karate-do), 3rd and 4th characters makes "nihon' or "nippon", which means Japan. Perhaps this is a name of some vilage or smth. As a matter of interest i checked also Chinese, but no chinese-english online dictionary give me meaning whatsoever((.

And the same about your next link. No meaning, just 塵 "chiri" - dust, "gomi" - garbage; 灰 "hai" - ash.

I don't agree with Igor Dmitriev

藍道 is indigo road (blue road), and may read as 'randou'. It seems like an organization name to me. Randou Nihon, Blue Road Japan, sound nice huh?
