koyomi

meaning: calendar, almanac

== koyomi == (noun) calendar, almanac
花暦 == hanagoyomi == (noun) flower calendar




Bottom radical is 'sun/day' (日), which here indicates the passage of time. The top radical is a simplified version of 'history/regular path' (歴). Henshall suggests taking the top element as 'history' without the 'foot/stop' radical (止), and as a mnemonic: 'Calendar records non-stop history of days.'
