Recently, I found a nickname, 青水庵 on the internet. How do you read this?

1 Answer 1


I read it [青水庵]{せいすいあん} if there's no hint.

But, I googled this name and found an illustrator (NSFW) who calls himself [青水庵]{あおみずあん}.

Why I read せいすいあん first?

can be read as either あん and いおり. In case of this, since occurs directly after other kanji in a group, the general rule is to read all kanji using the Chinese pronunciation ([音読]{おんよ}み) in general. e.g. 吉兆庵 (きっちょうあん)
