N4 Kanji Course

Meaning:

In Japanese, 姉 means “older sister”.


How to read it:

Kunyomiあね、ねえ
Onyomi

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.

姉=女+市。
女 means “woman”,市 means “market”.
When you were small,it’s your elder sister that buy something for you in the market, because your parents are busy.
So 姉 stands for “elder sister”.
