Hello there. What is the difference between reading as 'wo' or 'o'?

Well, basically, you can read it as both ways. 'wo' was used a long time ago, but it slowly transformed to 'o' (same with 'he' and 'e'). Both ways of pronouncing it is acceptable, but in modern times, it would probably be better to use 'o.' It's easier to say anyway. ^_^

The proper pronounciation is "o".
