Hmm.. the kanji don't show properly. You can check them here (Shift-JIS encoding):

Thank you in advance!

Yes, thank you Mr. Turner. That did indeed help.

Does anyone know if I'm correct as I believe that the kanji of most dieties (buddhist or shinto) and geographical locations have pretty established readings?

In case anyone's wondering: I'm trying to translate little info about Shinto Munen ryu from Bugei Ryuha Dai Jiten.
Really good practise for my Japanese :)
