Puzzle 98: JaTaHoKu, cryptic

Last JaTaHoKu for now, a JaTaHoKu with cryptic clues. I made a triagonal one, too, but didn’t get around to rendering that yet. Maybe later.


Rules Place numbers from 1 to 6 into some empty cells, such that each row, column and region contains each number exactly once. Clues within the grid are Tapa clues; the numbered cells form a valid Tapa solution with respect to these. Clues along the bottom and right edges are skyscraper clues. Clues along the top and left are Japanese Sums clues, with question marks standing in for unspecified digits. (I.e., 10 would be two question marks.)

Some digits have been replaced by letters. Equal letters correspond to equal digits, different letters to different digits.
