KYUU
miya
meaning: palace, shrine, prince
神宮 == jingyuu == shrine
宮様 == miyasama == prince


Top radical is 'roof/building', bottom is a Non-General-Use character originally meaning 'vertebrae', but often used to mean 'joined blocks'; in the case of this character, it means 'joined rooms', i.e., a building of significant size. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Palace is building with joined rooms.'
