Today I’m going to give out some kanji exercises. I’ll provide the meaning, the kun reading, which is the native Japanese reading and the on reading, which is the pronunciation borrowed from the Chinese. The on will be in katakana. The kun will be in hiragana. All you have to do is provide the characters in the comment section. All these characters are pretty standard in the Japanese language, so hopefully you won’t have too much difficulty with this exercise.

2) Meaning: three. Kun: . On: サン.

3) Meaning: six. Kun:  On: ロク.
