But that's not the point. I was reading on Japanese units of measurement on the Wikipedia today
"[...]and the Japanese version of the Tom Thumb story, Issun Bōshi (一寸法師, Issun Bōshi?), literally "one sun boy", as well as in many Japanese proverbs."
Then, while staring at the rest of the table, it dawns on me. 10 sun = 1 shaku (foot).
DEAR GODS, THE PUN! FANTASTIC! :DDDDD
