[No.0017 Kanji] Winter

kanji for winter
This kanji stands for a winter, and is pronounced "ふゆ huyu" or "とう tou".
It originally came from hieroglyph which expresses a situation hanging foods for storage, and it turned out the kanji indicating a season when we store foods.

もう冬だねぇ。 - It's almost winter.
冬眠したい。    - I want to have a winter sleep.

Personally I love the phrase "もう冬だねぇ。" because it can indicate variety kinds of feeling of the person who say it. That unclear but implicit phrase is beautiful. I think most of Japanese think so. This non-direct expression is Japanese culture.
