    EtymologyEdit

    Kanji in this term
    わん
    Hyōgaiji
    on’yomi

    From Middle Chinese (*quan). Compare modern Mandarin (wān).

    Note that this character is replaced in modern Japanese by the simplified character (wan), rather than the simplified Chinese character (wān, bend, curve). The Japanese simplified version means bay or inlet when used on its own, but now also includes the bend, curve meanings when used in compounds.[1]

    PronunciationEdit

    NounEdit

    (kyūjitai kanji, shinjitai kanji , hiragana わん, rōmaji wan)

    1. a bend, a curve
