    Are you sure you're asking on the right site (Japanese.SE and not Chinese.SE)? – Earthliŋ Aug 18 '15 at 12:20

    , this character may have been used in Japanese but it is way more common in Chinese. – 永劫回帰 Aug 18 '15 at 13:07

That's the first character in the well-known Mandarin Chinese greeting "nĭ hăo" (你好). 你 means "you." I don't remember ever seeing it in a Japanese context, and jisho.org returns no words containing it.

Edit: tried searching *你, and got one result - 玫瑰玫瑰我愛你, which is a Chinese song from the 1940's which means "Rose, Rose, I love you." *你* also has no results.
