End

Thank-you!

After  year, this kanji blog is ending.  

Simply put, I've learned more from using Anki online flashcards, and I can better invest my study elsewhere.

I hope you've enjoyed reading the blog as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Take a break

Thanks for following Learning Kanji:-)

I'll be taking a break until mid to late March, because of unavoidable work commitments.

See you again in March!!


Cloud

Reading:  UN, kumo

Strokes: 12

Etymology: Over time, the lower character came to mean billowing vapours.  The upper character, rain, was added to emphasise the meaning of cloud.

Hint: Rain + two (二)+ noses.

Mnemonic:  BILLOWING RAIN CLOUDS LOOK LIKE TWO NOSES!

Combinations:

浮き雲 (ukigumo) drifting cloud

(Based upon Henshall, 1998)
