Readings & Meanings:
He's smart. (lit., As for him, his head is good.)
He fell down the stairs and injured his head/suffered an injury to his skull.
- 頭 is the entire head region: skull, face, neck.
- 頭部 is just the skull part, not including the face/neck.
My titles for these posts usually are my attempt to make a mnemonic for the kanji. Today, I just realized that part of the kanji for 頭 is 豆, or bean! I know the old rhyme goes
Beans, Beans, they're good for your heartbut beans are probably good for your head, too. Just remember, 豆 is on the left.
The more you eat 'em, the more you fart.
赤頭巾 is the Japanese name for Little Red Riding Hood!
