Kanji kun’yomi reading

The kanji kun'yomi reading is the Japanese reading that closely approximates the meaning of the Chinese character; a Japanese equivalent word to that meaning would get associated with that character. As with on'yomi, there can be multiple kun'yomi readings for the same kanji. Some kanji may have no kun'yomi readings.

Kanji on’yomi reading

The kanji on’yomi reading is the Chinese reading of the character; the original sounds they make in the Chinese language at the time the character was introduced. The sound is also based on the area it was imported from. Since Japanese and Chinese languages have different sounds, the sounds that Japan gave to these characters are a close approximation of the original Chinese pronunciation. Some kanji were introduced from different parts of China at different times, and they have multiple on'yomi readings. They many also have different meanings. Almost all of the kanji characters have on'yomi readings except for most of the kanji that were developed in Japan.
