It's not th' Taichou, but I did manage ta find somethin'! Inside this lantern was another a those weird messages. "The deer Taichou was "beared" away to the mouth of the volcano." I am SO TIRED of these messages... heck if I know what they mean. So, another call to th' Berry Head. He thinks it might be Mt. Aso, an active volcano in Kumamoto Prefecture. Since kuma means bear, I guess he might be right.
