yubi, sa(su)

親指 == oyayubi == thumb
指図 == sashizu == directions

Left radical is the radical form of 'hand' (手), right radical is 'good' (旨), being used phonetically to express 'branch'. Henshall suggests  taking the right radical as 'person sitting' and 'sun' (日), and as a mnemonic:  'Person sits pointing at sun with finger.'
