I think the expanded name is not friendly for foreigners.

For example, assume you are in Japan, and your navigation app shows "Turn
left at '杉小学校前'".
After a few minutes you will see a guide sign '杉小前'.

Maybe you would wonder you should turn here or not.

So I think `name` should be 'labeled text string as it is'. Ground truth.

'杉小学校前': expanded name
'杉小前': labeled name
