Learn Japanese: 1 Minute Japanese – Atsui! Hot, Hot, Thick

1 Minute Japanese: Sometimes different kanji are used for the same pronunciation to show a shade of meaning. Today we will look at the four kanji for あつい atsui and try to clear up some confusion.

For Upper Beginners (but beginners may get something out of it too!)
暑い hot (weather)
熱い hot (to the touch)
厚い thick
篤い deep, strong

  1. I love your blog and the videos are great! ^_^ But I do wonder, what is hot dog…?

    I also wanted to say a huge, huge, HUGE Thank You! for everything you’ve done with your website. I just found out this morning that I passed the JLPT and it’s largely because of your kanji and grammar tutorials. Please keep up the hard work!

    ありがとうございました!がんばってください!

  2. Thanks!

    Congrats on passing the test! Hang your certificate on the wall.

    I’m pretty sure Hot dog is ホットドッグ although I don’t eat them 🙂
