KAN

ochii(ru)
meaning: collapse

自縄自縛に陥る == jijoujibakuniochiiru == (verb) to be caught in one's own trap
陥落 == kanraku == (noun) fall, sinking, surrender, capitulation


Left radical is 'hill'. The right portion is derived from a character only found in Chinese, meaning 'hole'. The upper portion is 'bending person'. Henshall suggests taking the lower right radical 'old' (旧), and as a mnemonic: 'Old person stumbles and collapses on hill.'
