fukuro

meaning: bag, pouch

網袋 == amibukuro ==  string or net bag
足袋 == tabi == (noun) tabi (Japanese socks with split toe)




Bottom radical is 'clothing' (衣), here meaning 'cloth'. Top radical is 'replace' (代), which acts phonetically to express 'container'. A 'cloth container' is a bag or pouch. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Replace one's clothes with a bag.'
