    I think most people say Yan-ig-a-SA-wa. But in Japanese it would be YanIGsawa.

    Say it without any accented syllable and it will be closest. Now where is that OP?

    That sounds like a different word totally.

    Surely it would be 柳沢

    With the accent on the second syllable NA, ie YaNAgisawa

    Yes, youre right. I dont think you would pronounce the second to last A at all.

    I think the closest English equivalent would be yaNAHGswa.

    I was really tired when I made my other post.
