comment Difference between words that describe the idea of neighborhood/being close to something
Note that can be either へん or ほとり, though the latter usually means "edge", used in context of water (bank of a river, beside a lake, etc.)

comment Why does 今度【こんど】 mean “next time”?
Why shouldn't it be confusing? We basically have the same problem in English.
