Yesterday we took up the parts of the body for our words of the day. Today, we will take the kanji of five body parts: the eye, the ear, the mouth, hand and legs. In addition to that we will also learn kanjis for space: up, down, left, right and middle.
This set of kanji are also easy to learn and memorize.
|下||below||ka or ge||shita|
|右||right||u or yuu||migi|
|足||foot or leg||soku||ashi|
Just for fun. In the pictures above, Naruto is the 上, Sasuke is the 右, Neji is the 左, Shikamaru is 下 while Sakura is 中. kawaii!
These are the kanji mnemonics by Henshall:
|上||bar with handle, sticking up over baseline|
|下||t-bar with droopy lower handle|
|左||left hand steadies carpenter’s square|
|右||right hand to the mouth|
|中||Chinese arrow pierces middle of target|
|手||hand with fingers spread|
|足||round knee and foot suffice to show leg|
