I don't think he was in the credits at all. As for the pronunciation,
I vote for 'Tajiwara' or 'Tajewara'. Which reminds me of one of my
favorite songs from my childhood up at Pearl Lakes. Hit it, Gersten!

(singing)
"I say Tajiwara, you say Tajemura,
I say 'One chants out', you say 'One chance out',
Tajiwara, Tajemura, 'One chants out', 'One chance out',
Let's call the whole thing off." Dee doop-dee doop doo....

Sorry, I had an attack of Leland-itis, commonly known as 'Happy Feet'.

By the way, can we stop using nonexistent words like 'alot'? Thank you.
I hate that. Also, 'everyday' is not an adverb, contrary to popular
opinion.
