on’yomi kun’yomi Radicals
せき ゆう

Meaning: Evening

The evening radical and the evening kanji are exactly the same.

So, if you know the radical, you know the meaning of this kanji as well.

Reading: せき

When we need to remember せき, we will use the word sexy. In the evening, you have to look your best when you go out (to the bars, clubs, restaurants, wherever). The whole point of looking good? It’s so you look sexy (せき).

Since you know the meaning of the kanji, you can think “okay, what do I do in the evening? I make myself look nice and go out and do fun things. Think through all the things you do (or could do) and then look at yourself in the mirror and think, “I am one sexy frood, meow.”


Only one vocab word to learn, so learn it well!

a 夕べ(ゆうべ)= Evening

  • Meaning: The meaning is the same as the kanji.
  • Reading: You can tell this is the kun’yomi reading because it has hiragana attached to it. If you know this vocab word means “evening” then you can say that “in the evening, you meet with “YUri” (ゆう). You can imagine yourself why you’re meeting with the guy with the stereotypical Russian name.
