Dates, such as tsuitachi, futsuka, mikka and so on are formed
with numbers (kanji, hiragana or romaji) followed by the above
kanji for day.
Similarly, months are formed with a number plus the above kanji
for month, i.e. ichigatsu (January), nigatsu (February) and so on.
Days of the week (getsuyoubi, kayoubi etc.) are all formed with the kanji for day, preceded by kanji or hiragana. There is a kanji for the central "you", but it's Level 3. Hang in there.
Watch out for Monday (moon-day), which uses the kanji for both moon
and sun (confusing) and also Sunday (sun-day, geddit?) which
manages to use the same kanji twice with different readings.
Each of the above day kanji have individual meanings, such
as sui (from suiyoubi, Wednesday), meaning water, also
being read as mizu when on its own. Click on them above
to call up the information in the right-hand window.
