TEI


meaning: pavilion, inn

料亭 == ryoutei == (noun) [Japanese] restaurant
亭主 == teiju == (noun) master, host, landlord, innkeeper, husband




The top radical is a simplification of 'tall' or 'tall building' (高). Bottom radical is 'exact/nail' (丁), which here acts phonetically to express 'stay/stop'. A 'tall building where one stops' is an inn. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Nail supports tall pavilion.'
