(Redirected from Nittato
Nittatò, also known as Japanese Polynesia (whence the name, Nittatò - 日多島 translates as "Japanese Polynesia"), and formerly Russian Polynesia, are *here*'s Line Islands. The islands were, until 1905, a possession of Russia, and then became Japanese, before being granted independance on April 24, 1954, having been governed as an extention of Kanawiki. The Emperor of Japan is Protector, and the King of Kauai, in Kanawiki is the head of state. The islands are rather isolated, preserving a good deal of their traditional ways, although they did convert to Russian Orthodoxy during the Russian period of rule.
