Let's see...  Masamune-dono, when referring to me in the context of an SCA 
Court, or similar formal documents, might feel it appropriate to call me 
Jaamido-sama; however, in the context of daily discourse Jaamido-san, is of 
course, always correct.  Jaamido-kun is to be avoided at all times, to save 
me the expense and trouble of hiring a Ronin  :)

I, of course, not being Japanese will continue to refer to you as Massa 
Muni...  :)
