I just wanted to confirm something with one or two of the experts at this forum.
Hikari - Light
Kaze - Wind
If I wanted to say "Light Wind" Would I say "Hikari Kaze" or "Kaze Hikari"?? Also, would it be two words or one?? Also, if you could tell me how to pronounce "Kaze" and "Hikari" that would be great. Thanks very much for your time.

your problem comes from an English homonym.
If "light" means "ray of light" hikari (光) is the correct word. But if "light" means "weightless", you have to use the word karui (軽い). "Light wind" should be the second usage so you have to say "karui kaze" (軽い風)

Hello, I'm sure my request will not surprise anyone. I am going to get three tattoos very soon, but need help finding the correct symbols for three words: perseverance, determination and discipline. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
