I've been studying Kanji more lately and it is so interesting! It is also so difficult!
I look at signs everywhere and had noticed these two kanji - 四国 I thought the first was four and the second was country. Four could be yon or shi. The second kanji might be kuni or koku.
Finally, it dawned on me - Shikoku! The island I live on. Shikoku is the smallest of Japan's main islands and has four prefectures: Kagawa, Ehime, Kochi, and Tokushima. The former names were Sanuki, Awa, Tosa, Iyo. (The other major islands in Japan all have volcanoes, but there are no volcanoes on Shikoku. Just an interesting fact - nothing to do with the kanji.)
Back to Kanji - Knowing my interest in learning more Kanji, my friend gave me this book.
I don't expect I'll ever learn to really read Japanese, but I do enjoy figuring out bits and pieces!
