    AUTHOR NOTE: This guide originally appeared at
    [http://tabiasobiplus.blogspot.com]. Feel free to leave any comments,
    corrections, etc., on that site.
    
    Here is a list of the items you can gather from Monster Hunter 3 Tri's first
    map, "Kotou" (孤島) or Solitary Island. The island's 13 areas (including the
    Base Camp) house a total of 32 gathering points, which are marked by the
    following telltale signs:
    
    - Seed point: Looks almost like small brown rocks.
    - Mushroom point: Pretty easy to spot. Just look for, well, a ginormous
    mushroom.
    - Grass point: Actually looks more like a plant.
    - Bee point: Look for a hive.
    - Bug point: An area with bugs flying around.
    - Rock point: Marked by a big, conspicuous rock.
    - Bone point: Look for a bone piece that kind of looks like a white stone.
    - Fishing point: Basically marked by a body of water.
    
    Besides items from the gathering points, I included the stuff you can get via
    item exchange with the "Old Man" (which is the last section of this FAQ).
    
    I tried my best to match names to accepted English conventions from past Monster
    Hunter games. Those that I couldn't find a match for are marked with a question
    mark (?). In most cases, these are items that are new to MH3. Now let's check
    out the map:
    
    ==============================
    MAP: "Kotou" (Solitary Island)
    ==============================
    
    
    
               ====                      ==========

                           |      |x(10)|          |
                            ======      |          |
                (7)x === x(11) x(8)      ==========
                    | 8 |                     x
                     === x(5)                =====
                                            |  9  |
                                            |     |

                        ===             (6)x =====
                       x                      x
              (7)x ======= x(2)           ====
                  |       |              |    |    ====

                  |       |              |    |   |Camp|
                   =======        x(2)    ====     ====
                            (3)x ====       x(1)
                                |    |
     			    |  1 |
                                |    |
                                 ====
    
    First off, I apologize for my horrible ASCII art skills. I'm just hoping this
    mess of a map uploads in one piece with the formatting intact. Note that x's on
    the map indicate exits. In cases where the connection isn't obvious, I also
    indicated the area the exit leads to within brackets. For example, "x(11)" or
    "(11)x" means that exit leads to Area 11.
    
    Otherwise, if you want a map that makes a lot more sense, I have an actual scan
    from a Japanese guide I'm using posted here:
