    Updated 05/01/17: Arigato Update! (Use instead of previous Rising Sun versions)

    Arigato Update Changelog
    -Added a TSL Japan map featuring all the civs except Ryukyu. (The Ikko-ikki start at Nagashima)
    -Reworked all the icons.
    -The alpha icons are now proper kamon instead of pixelated blobs.
    -Konishi now has its own kamon and colour scheme instead of using Spain's.
    -Oda, Toyotomi, Akechi, and Uesugi now have the correct colour scheme and the same kamon design across colour and alpha.
    -Cities should no longer go invisible sometimes.
    -Previously unpromotable UUs should now be promotable.
    -Added five new leaderheads, so that no two Japanese civs share a leaderhead. Sho Hashi now has his own artwork; Augustin Konishi still has William's.
    -All the leaders now have unique greeting messages.
    -Nerfed Kato and Ikko-ikki.
    -The first two thirds of the Oda city list is now properly Oda. The Oda capital is now Kiyosu instead of Nagoya or Kyoto.
    -Sakamoto now has a more readable colour scheme.
    -The five minor civs (now Kyoto, Izumo, Fu'nai, Tsushima, and Hakodate, one of each CS type) no longer conflict with the major civs and no longer share colour schemes.
    -A few misc bugfixes and historical name changes.
