Today’s second #kanji is #朝.
One way of remembering this kanji is writing as “10th (十日) (of) October (十月)” (十日十 is written vertically on the left and 月 is on the right) but make sure you don’t write it in the American way (October (the) 10th) as if you swap 日 and 月, that doesn’t make a character!

Meaning: morning

Reading: チョウ、あさ、あした
 

朝食(チョウショク): breakfast
