Oroshii the wind from the mountains

#oroshii #unihan #kanji #japanese 

I have seen one reference site that claims this character has been borrowed for use in writing Cantonese dialect with Hanzi. Oroshii like the other kokuji a group of about 30 - 40 characters seems otherwise to be unique to Japan. There is a related verb form written with a different kanji.
