[FIXED 6/23/02]
Origin is 'obscure', says Henshall. Top radical is 'hole' (穴) middle radical is an NGU character for 'nose', which often means 'self' when used as a radical. Bottom radical is 'heart/feeling' (心). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Nose makes hole in window, left feeling down'.

STROKE ORDER


TOU, DOU
michi
meaning: way, road
悪道 == akudou == wrong course, evil course
神道 == shinto == Shinto
Left radical is 'movement', right is 'head/chief' (首). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Head moves, showing way along road'.

STROKE ORDER

'Road' or 'way' is frequently used in compounds to mean not just a physical road, but a course of action, a philosophy (e.g., Shinto), or a way of life
