I'd like the following information about Japanese antarctic
stations to be written in tzdata.
Japan has two year-round bases: Syowa and Dome Fuji.
In all Japanese stations, +0300 is used as the standard time.
(http://www.crl.go.jp/uk/uk201/basyo.htm (Japanese) and
information from KAMO Hiroyasu <wd at ics.nara-wu.ac.jp>)
Syowa station, which is the first antarctic station of Japan,
was established on 1957-01-29. Since Syowa station is still the main
station of Japan, it's appropriate for the principal location.
The location of these stations are:
Dome Fuji: -771901+0394212
I noticed that the URL http://earth.agu.org/amen/nations.html
at the beginning of the file antarctica does not exist.
There is the corresponding page at COMNAP:
