Kanji Choumiryou - Seasonings

Kanji Choumiryou - Seasonings

In Japan we say "調味料(ちょうみりょう - choumiryou)" for the word "seasoning". And for salt, we generally say "塩(しお - shio)" and specifically for the salt for food, we say "食塩(しょくえん - shokuen)" - (the kanji "食" has a meaning of "eat" so the word "食塩" means "edible salt" or "salt for foods").

And for "pepper", we say "胡椒(こしょう - koshou)" and for "black pepper" we say "黒胡椒(くろこしょう - kurokoshou)" - (The kanji "黒" means "black"). And for "suger" we say "砂糖(さとう - satou)".
