良

Today’s #kanji is #良, which is listed under #うしとら(艮). There seems to be a few theory regarding how this character is formed. Some say it’s a pictograph and others say it’s made of its semantic and phonetic elements, where the semantic element is a simplified form of 畗(富) and the phonetic element is a form of 亡 although 良 and 亡 do not share a sound in Japanese.
