comment When saying Japanese place names like “秋叶原”, do people always use the respective Chinese pronunciation?
I would add that some transit systems in Japan have stop announcements in Chinese, and they read place names using the Mandarin pronunciations. For place names that have non-Kanji components, they are simply left out of the Mandarin reading (e.g., 西ヶ原 Nishigahara becomes 西原 Xīyuán). One exception to this is ノ no, which is translated to 之, a Chinese character of equivalent meaning (e.g., 丸ノ内 Marunouchi becomes 丸之内 Wánzhīnèi).
