JOU
shiro
meaning: castle

攻城 == koushiro == seige
姫路城 == himejijou == Himeji Castle, known as the 'White Heron'


The left radical is 'earth' (土). Right is 'become/consist/make' (成), acting phonetically to express 'pile up'. This character originally referred to earthen ramparts. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Castle consists of earthen ramparts.'
