kanji-a-day:

119/2000

JLPT: N3

School Grade: 2nd (7 years old)

This character was originally a combination of 止 stop, and 兮 an auxiliary word for euphony or emphasis. Here 兮 is equivalent to 平 flat, and suggests doing business using scales. Together with 止, which also provides the meaning of “feet,” it gives “going and stopping to do business.” This suggests “market,” and markets were mostly located in “cities.” 

In it’s current form it can be taken as a combination of 亠 the lid radical and 巾 the cloth radical.

This character developed from a pictogram of a cloud with rain drops falling from it.

Note: The first example’s reading is うてんならば. I guess I never noticed that I accidentally made a mark by the て, which can make it look like I was half-heartedly trying to making it a で. Sorry for any confusion.
