X2F92 is Unicode character number 12178, KanjiRadical.

X2F92 is element of set Miru of the three Kanji that have similar pictures, similar pronunciation ("miru") and similar meaning (view, look, watch, see).


X2F92 [3], KanjiRadical

X898B [4], KanjiLiberal

XFA0A [5], KanjiConfudal
are confusive. They have similar images, similar pronunciation (miru) and similar meaning (watch, see, look).

Even a native Japanese speaker, looking at kanjis , , , is unlikely to answer:
Which of them is X2F92?
Which of them is X898B?
Which of them is XFA0A?

Some software automatically (silently, without any warning) replace character 見 to 見. This causes confusions. In particular, at TORI (that accesses the database at mizugadro), it is not possible to create article entitled 見 (short name for XFA0A) in a regular way. Attempts to access it redirect to article (short name for X898B).

At the confusions, the articles should be specified with their hexadecimal names X2F92, X898B, XFA0A rather than with the short names , , .

In order to avoid the confusion, the special term Miru is defined.
It allows to refer to all the three characters at once, whitout to specify, which of them should be taken into account.

Miru appears as short substitute of cumbersome construction

X2F92 or X898B or XFA0A

Among the Miru characters, KanjiRadical X898B seems to be most popular, most usual; at least in the Internet articles, that allow to copypast the kanji as argument to the PHP program du.t and identify the character.

X898B is described both in the Jisho [1] and Nihongomaster [6] while X2F92 is absent there.

Term Miru has also other meanings, not related with the Unicode characters.


X2F92 is qualified as KanjiRadical.

At some computers, its image is different from (but still similar to) that of the the more popular character X898B KanjiLiberal.

However, some articles are dedicated aepacially to X2F92 [7]

At Wikipedia, X2F92 is denoted with term Radical 147 [8]
