Kanji: 三 san three

Three lines = 3
JLPT N5: 3 / 100 | 3 Strokes

On: サン
Kun: みっ・つ
Meaning:
three

Mnemonics: Three lines for number three. While still easy, technically, 三 is three times the difficulty of 一.

Stroke Order:
Write the three strokes from top to bottom. Remember, the middle is shorter.

Examples:

  • (さん) three
  • 三角(さんかく) triangle
  • 三月(さんがつ) March [the 3rd month]

三月(さんがつ)日本(にほん)きます。

I’m going to Japan in March.

  • 三月 March [the months are easy in Japanese: a number + gatsu]
  • に in (March)
  • 日本に to Japan [notice the different meaning of the two に particles; they both show direction of some kind: in March and to Japan]
  • 行きます to go [polite form of 行く (to go)]
