Wanna be an evangelist of Japanese culture: huu(Kanji)

Wednesday, February 1, 2012


Today, I want to introduce a kanji to you.

The word is "風".

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 : 風 / huu : =wind
kun-yomi : 風 / kaze : =wind

This kanji's on-yomi is often used with other Kanjis.
For example, "強風"(kyou-huu=strong-wind) is one of them.

In addition, this kanji often appears in Japanese game and comics.
The representative thing of it is Final Fantasy series.
