Kanji: 五 go five


JLPT N5: 5 / 100 | 4 Strokes

On: ゴ
Kun: いつ・つ
Meaning:
five

Mnemonics: This is modern art. 五 is an artist’s impression of the number 5. [Well, it kind of looks like the number!]

Stroke Order:


Examples:

  • () five
  • 五月(ごがつ) May [the 5th month]
  • ()()(げつ) five months [So far we have seen that adding a number between 1-12 with gatsu makes the month names. But here is how to say a duration of months: # + ka + getsunotice it is “getsu” not “gatsu”]


十五(じゅうご)まで(かぞ)えます。 

I can count to fifteen.

  • 十五 15
  • まで until; up to (fifteen)
  • 数えます to count
