JLPT N5: 13 / 100 | 3 Strokes


On: ばん; まん
Kun:

Meaning: ten thousand

 

Stroke Order:

The stroke order for kanji like this is a little different. Start at the top horizontal line but the second stroke is the rightmost one that looks like フ


Examples:
百万 hyaku man - a million (1,000,000) [100 &10,000]
一万円 ichi man en - 10,000 yen (about $100 US)
万歳 ban zai - hurrah! banzai! hooray! [usually said 3 times in a row]

Example Sentence:
はい、一万円ぐらいあります。
hai, ichiman gurai arimasu.
Yes, I have about 10,000 yen.

[Again, this is about $100 USD]
