comment Lunar Seas and Sun Hills at a sports park?
Not quite sure, but it seems to me very akin to naming the two places "Moon Beach" and "Sun Hill." I don't think there's any particular logic to it, but I'll add this as a comment since I'm not sure.

comment Words made from strokes of a kanji like 女 toくノ一
The 字 doesn't have to do with sleeping; 「川の字」 is literally translated as "the character for river." The 字 is specifically pointing out that the people are in the shape of the character itself. I think you're overthinking it :)

comment what does it mean when a causative verb is conjugated in the causative form?
かぶせる means "to put on" or "to cover with," so かぶせさせる means "to make (someone) cover" or "to have (someone) cover." The causative here is pretty standard; in the first example, it means "to make them put (the foil on the leaves)." In the second example, it is, as Ito-san said in another comment, more similar to かぶせる in meaning than かぶさせる. But grammatically, it's just causative, not "causative of causative."

comment what does it mean when a causative verb is conjugated in the causative form?
The verb is most definitely not かぶる; it is かぶせる. かぶせる is not a causative form; it's a normal, transitive verb. That verb is then conjugated into causative form, becoming かぶせさせる. Here's a link to the dictionary entry for かぶせる: dic.yahoo.co.jp/…

comment Is こんばんは too formal for everyday conversation?
I like to think of the "gohon" as acting grammatically like an adverb here. It makes the sentence placement and grammar seem more intuitive.
