Kanji 70: 空

Meaning:

In Japanese, 空 means “empty; sky”.


How to read it:

Kunyomiそら、あ、から
Onyomiくう

How to write it:


Origin:

空=穴+工
穴 means “cave”. 工 means “the man digging the cave”. There is nothing in the cave.
So 空 stands for “empty”.
And it’s almost empty in the sky, so 空 stands for “sky” too.
