FUN


meaning: atmosphere, air

雰囲気 == funiki == (noun) atmosphere [musical], mood, ambiance
霧雰 == mufun == (noun) misty air




Top radical is 'rain' (雨), here meaning more generally 'weather conditions/atmosphere'. Bottom radical is 'divide' (分), being used phonetically to express 'powder'. This character originally meant something like 'misty air'. It is now little used. Henshall suggests mnemonic: 'Rain divides the atmosphere.'
