Note:

Kanji (Chinese characters) have two different readings – the onyomi and the kunyomi.
The onyomi is closer to the original Chinese language and is mostly used for nouns.
The kunyomi reading is used to show the traditional Japanese pronunciation.
It is most frequently used when kanji appear in adjectives or verbs.
