nobo(ru)
meaning: climb
登場 == toujou == appearance, entry on a stage
登山 == tozan == mountaineering


Origin obscure. Bottom radical is 'food vessel' (豆), and the upper radicals originally depicted pairs of feet and hands. It is not clear how these elements combined to form the character's current meaning. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Two funny feet climb food vessel'
