Hi (Kanichiwa) Etsuko
How interesting. Considering you are Japanese and if you were in the
Orient or when communicating with another Far Easterner you will be
called Miyamoto Etsuko, your maiden surname will no longer be part of
your official name and your husband's surname will always comes first.
I do not believe in Japan or any South East Asian countries that it is
generally acceptable for a married women to include her maiden name after
she is married and tend to believe it is a practice acceptable to women
in the West.
