N4 Kanji Course

Meaning:

In Japanese, 昼 means “afternoon”.


How to read it:

Kunyomiひる
Onyomiちゅう

How to write it:


Origin:

It’s hard to remember this kanji by its origin. However, I will think of a way to help you remember it.

昼 = 尺 + 旦
尺 means “ruler”. 旦 looks like a sun above the line.
To express that the sun is still there.
How do you know that it is afternoon now while you don’t have a watch? See the sun.
So 昼 stands for “afternoon”.
