    Etymology 1

    edit
    Kanji in this term
    かん
    Grade: S
    (ateji)
    on'yomi
    Alternative spelling
    (kyūjitai)

    Likely from Dutch kan (cylindrical metallic container), with additional influence from English can (cylindrical metallic container). The kanji is an example of ateji (当て字). Alternatively, from Middle Chinese (kuɑnH, can; jar; tin). The usage of is likely due to a 新字体 (shinjitai) simplification from earlier 旧字体 (kyūjitai) , where the phonetic component was entirely eliminated.
