Attention:

For making conjugations, the last (or last 2) Hiragana of a Japanese adjective is always written outside the Kanji.

So when I say 高 can be read as たかい, you should not assume that the Kanji 高 alone is read as "takai". Instead, the last い should be written outside, i.e. 高い. And this Kanji-Kana hybrid is read as "takai".

This applies ONLY to 訓読み (Japanese style reading).

Do not confuse this Kanji with:
