SAI
kiwa
meaning: occasion, edge, contact

国際 == kokusai == international
分際 == bunzai == social standing


The left radical is 'hill'. Right radical is 'festival' (祭), acting phonetically to express 'meet'. This character originally meant 'earthen walls coming into contact'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Festival at edge of hill is quite an occasion.'
