Characters X2FA1 , X8FB5 cause confusion. Evan a native Japanese speaker, watching , , is unlikely to answer:

Characre is qualified as Chinese[10] and as Japanese [11]; it could specify citizenship of a walker (Chinese or Japanese), or the country (China or Japan) where the walk is performed. However, these characters look similar; looking at such a character, it is difficult to guess, is it Chinese or Japanese kanji.

However, these characters can be distinguished with PHP program du1.t, using command

php du1.t ⾡辵

but this is not convenient to do this each time, when some of these two characters appear in the text and the reader/writer tries to guess, is it Chinese or Japanese. Neither nor is allowed in Tarja.


Due to the confusion with graphic presentation of characters X2FA1 and X8FB5 , none of these kanjis is allowed in Tarja. Character X8FB5 can be translated into Tarja in the following ways:

Shinnyou or しんにょう, to refer to street, movement, or advance.

Shinnyuu or しんじゅう, naka, なか, kimasu, きます, to refers to entry, penetration, coming in.

WalkU, if any of the above

Chyakubu or ちゃくぶ [12] (to indicate the graphical aspect of picture of this term)

SIMPLIFIED WALK to indicate the easy movement

WALK ONE or WALK TWO to indicate number of advanceing persons

X8FB5 or LIBERAL WALK to distinguish it from character X2FA1 .

As usually, there is ambiguity, many options at the translation of word from one language to another. Similar ambiguity appears at the inverse translation, see Tarja-Japanese. But within Tarja, there is no ambiguity; all elements of Tarja are visually distinguishable, identifiable from their pics.
