Join me as I learn kanji, one day at a time.

おんよみ: やく
くんよみ: Freebie! (though one source says ほ・める)
部首 (ぶしゅ): 糸 (いとへん)

Meaning: approximately, roughly, some, about

Notes:

約100人

やくひゃくにん
about 100 people.  I didn’t know this use of 約.  I only knew the classic:

約束

やくそく
promise, commitment, appointment (which leads me to tomorrows Kanji of the Day…)

予約

よやく
a reservation, scheduled appointment

入場無料・要予約

「入場無料・要予約」from Flickr member nodoca.  Click image for larger version. (Original image is here).

要予約  (よよやく) = “appointment required”
