Wanna be an evangelist of Japanese culture: ji(kanji)

Sunday, January 29, 2012


Today, I want to introduce a kanji to you.

The word is "時".

This word has on-yomi and kun-yomi.
(If you don't know on-yomi and kun-yomi, please read a past entry of this blog!)

on-yomi : 時 / ji : =hour
kun-yomi : 時 / toki : =hour

In Japanese language, time is expressed by adding "時" to a number.
For example, 1:00 is "1時"(ichi-ji), and 2:00 is "2時"(ni-ji).
