Words denoting "Present" period

We have grouped a small set of 6 JLPT N5 Japanese kotoba that start with Japanese Kanji "今".

Note: You must know Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji to learn them.

The reading for this Kanji "今" varies (You should know by now that one Kanji will have different reading). However, the meaning remains the same - which is "Present" or "Now" or "This". If this Kanji "今" alone is there, then the reading is "Ima" - which means "Now"

This is a super easy milestone to cross. One good thing to note here is, Once you have learnt the Kanji "今", you can understand that, the word formed with the combination of other Kanji means something to do with "Present" or "This".
