I've known the days of the week for a while now but I still say the meaning of the kanji each time to remember:D moon – monday fire – tuesday water – wednesday tree – thursday money – friday earth – saturday sun – sunday It's elementary! Thanks @Potinase. There's some good words there
Just a tiny note: ん is pronounced [N] so the romanization of 火山 (かざん) becomes Kazan.
