Is the Japanese か more rounded than the Chinese 力 ?

It seems the Chinese character has a sharper corner there on the first stroke while the Japanese kanji seems to curve around the corner.


The answer is yes. か is more rounded than 力.

か (ka): is Hiragana character.

力 (ちから - Chikara): "power", it is Kanji character.

か and 力 are both Japanese. And 力 is also a kanji (Chinese character). But か is not a Chinese character, and it is not a kanji, it is a hiragana letter in Japanese.

They are different! :D

    Also can't forget カ the katakana character, which looks pretty much the same as the kanji.
