[No.0009 Kanji] Head

kanji for a head
This Kanji stands for a head, "あたま atama" in hiragana. It has other pronunciation, "ず zu". If there is only "頭", you can pronounce it "atama", but it is next to other Kanji, for example, "頭上", you cannot say "atama". "頭上" is pronounced "zu-jyo", meaning "over the head".

And it has another exception.
Do you know Japanese sweet, "manjyu"? It is written lik "饅頭 まんじゅう". I think this is confusing, but please do not hate Kanji haha.
