TOU

momo

meaning: peach

桃源郷 == tougenkyou == (noun) Arcady, Eden, Shangri-la
桜桃 == outou == (noun) [edible] cherry




Left radical is 'tree' (木). Right radical is 'sign/trillion' (兆), here meaning 'sign' or 'symbol'. The peach tree was at one time a symbol of fertility and pregnancy. This character is still associated with marriage in Chinese. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Tree bearing a trillion peaches.'
