A Load

Japanese Calligraphy by Nao

A Load

ni, ka

Nimotsu is something you are carrying. A load is ni or tsumini. Tenimotsu means luggage or baggage.

Ni or nimotsu can be a burden. By adding prefix o- to nimotsu, you can express it as a burden. That is onimotsu. A heavy burden is also expressed as omoni.

Packing is nizukuri. Zukuri comes from the verb tsukuru meaning to make.
