Today’s second kanji is #区. Apparently its radical is #かくしがまえ（匸）, not #はこがまえ（匚）and the inside is currently written as メ but this used to be 品 (i.e. the whole kanji was 區), so altogether its original meaning was “somewhere to hide goods”!
区（ク）: a ward, a city (23区’s in Tokyo are regarded as a 市 (city))
区切る（クぎる）: to punctuate, to divide
区分（クブン）: a division, sorting
区画（クカク）: division, a section
区域（クイキ）: an area, a district, a zone
地区（チク）: a district, an area, a zone
学区（ガック）: a school district, a school catchment area
選挙区（センキョク）: an electoral district, a constituency
