I don't know the correct terminology for this, so please forgive me if I get it wrong!

I am looking for the symbol / character for "FOOD" in Japanese. I keep google searching it, but am only getting pictures of sushi and rice (way to go google), which is definitely not what I am after. Other than that word, the word "groceries" would be really helpful.

If anyone could link me to a place where I could get these words in Japanese, or if someone could maybe send me a picture of them, I would appreciate you beyond words!!! It is for a project I am making, but I'm stuck til I find 'em.

Thank you in advance to anyone who can help! Smiley

I suppose you could say that 食 would be the kanji for "food"...

食べる (taberu) is "to eat", but a closer kanji compound is 食品 (shokuhin), which would be equivalent to "food stuffs" or "groceries.

Hope that's what you were looking for.

 Input Method Editor (IME) is a program that allows you to write in all sorts of languages and it's standard in XP

Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options. 
2. On the Languages tab, under Text services and input languages, click Details. 
3. Under Preferences, click Language Bar. 
4. Select the Show the Language bar on the desktop check box.

this topic was started awhile ago.. but I thought that I would add that the word for food is 食べ物 (in hiragana: たべもの) pronounced tabemono. it literally means "things you eat"
