Does anyone know about “Voltafil”?
This is from a book by Japanese author Haruki Murakami entitled “Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World.” The English translation of course. It mentions a place in Ukraine “a tableland commonly known as the Voltafil”
My searching has lead me to believe that Voltafil is probably not real, but I don’t think Murakami just made up the word.
That’s because it is impossible to write “Voltafil” in Japanese. The letters simply don’t exist to write it out. The closest I could come to translating it would sound like “Botafuru” which doesn’t do the word justice. Hence Voltafil doesn’t seem like a name that a Japanese author would just make up.
If Murakami didn’t make up the word, then where did it come from?
PS: Please do not give me a link to the first web page you found after typing “Voltafil” into Google
