OTA FAMILY CREST
Can you identify which one of the Family Crests on the "Pickett Fence" photo is specific to the OTA Family Crest?
Re: OTA FAMILY CREST
I believe you are referring to a photo on a VT-member's travel pages for Japan, you would therefore do better to send a VT-mail to the person concerned than to ask in the forum (although if they didn't specify in the first place, I doubt whether they will know which one it is).
