So I’m just a level 2 right now. I came across the kanji for Sword (tou - Sorry no Japanese keyboard on my laptop yet) in my lesson. My first thought was about how poor gardener Jourm cut off his toe for the mnemonic for the ‘above’ kanji. I thought FOR SURE the mnemonic was going to be talking about how Jourm cut off is toe (Tou) swinging his sword around and that’s why you found one on the ground. I was a little bit disappointed that it was in fact not about how poor Jourm lost the toe you find on the ground.
I mean… It makes sense!
