The kanji for “館(かん)” means “pavilion. This kanji is often used for buildings. Also, Japan is famous for “returning lost money and mobile phones” because everyone delivers them to police stations. There are always one at each station or area.
The kanji “屋（や)” means store. If you add “屋(や)” to what they are selling, it is usually the name of a store. Additionally, The JLPT exam uses “喫茶店(きっさてん)” for coffee shop, but to be honest, this may not be practical. When native speakers hear the word “喫茶店(きっさてん)” , they think of an old-fashioned café. These days, “カフェ” is often used in katakana.
|path, road, way||道(みち)|
People often ask me about the difference between ”うち” and ”いえ”. In Japanese speech style and culture, the idea of ”うち(inside)” and “そと(outside)” is a very important function. “うち” has the meaning of a place to which one belongs. Japanese people have a very strong sense of belonging and collectivity. We sometimes say “うち の かぞく (my family)” or “うち の かいしゃ (my company). When we simply say “うち”, we often refer to our own home.
