How do you say Rickshaw in Japanese?

jinrikishaw

人力車 jinrikisha – Rickshaw

Rickshaw comes from the original Japanese 人力車 jinrikisha.

人 jin (also pronounced hito) means person. 力 riki (or chikara) means power and 車 sha means cart or car.

The kanji on the back of that guys’ top is 嵐 arashi which literally means storm and refers to 嵐山 arashiyama in Kyoto where this photo was taken.
