Attention:

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

For example, when I say the pronunciation of 行 is いく, it does not mean that the Kanji 行 alone should be pronounced as "iku". Instead, the last Hiragana く should be written outside the Kanji, so we should write this verb as 行く and pronounce this Kanji-Kana hybrid as "iku".

Although the Kanji 行 in this case is in fact pronounced as "i", we should NEVER just remember it without also remembering the Kana that is written outside.

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