KEY TO PRONOUNCING JAPANESE WORDS.
JAPANESE VOWELS ARE CONSTANT WITH ONLY ONE SOUND. A IS PRONOUNCED AH OR OUR SHORT A, E IS PRONOUNCED LIKE OUR LONG A AS IN BAKE, I IS PRONOUNCE LIKE OUR LONG E AS IN SLEEP AND DOUBLE II JUST MAKES THE SOUND LONGER, O IS PRONOUNCED LIKE OUR LONG O LIKE IN OHIO AND U IS PRONOUNCED LIKE OUR SHORT U LIKE DOUBLE O IN BOO. SPECIAL GROUPS OF LETTER ARE PRONOUNCED USING THE FIRST TWO LETTERS AND THE VOWEL E.G. KYO IS PRONOUNCED KYOH, SHI (SHE) TSU (TSUE) THESE ARE ONLY A FEW BUT GIVE YOUR THE IDEA.  TWO VOWELS TOGETHER BOTH ARE PRONOUNCED E.G. IE (E A), EI (A E) AI (AH E) ALMOST LIKE THE LETTER I THESE 3 ARE THE MOST COMMON COMBINATIONS.

MARBLE MOUNTAIN....VIET NAM 1969 MARBLE MOUNTAIN....VIET NAM 1969 
Those of us in country in 1969 will remember this incident well. This DC-8 charter was cleared to land at DaNang International at night. The crew mis-identified Marble Mountain Army airfield as DaNang which is way too short for large aircraft. Getting that loaded slug down and stopped at nite must have made that pilots seat cushion disppear forever!! All recommendations were to disassemble the aircraft and ship it home but as you see this behemoth got off the ground in 2800 feet with very little fuel aboard and landed at DaNang International a few scant miles away. 
This from a guy that worked at Trans International Airlines.
