This is a quick follow up entry to the morning’s one, with the on’yomi readings for compass point kanji and one example word for each.
Hokkaido (the most northern island in Japan)
the Middle East
on’yomi: なん / な
“nan” / “na”
the South Pole
on’yomi: セイ / サイ
“sei” / “sai”
Kansai – the southern-western region of Japan
Speaking of Kansai, there is a lovely little book about the Kansai dialect that I have and will be writing about later in the year.
Anyway, let’s keep our eyes open for these on’yomi and kun’yomi readings of the compass points now we know them 🙂
