Picture of Niigata Tower neighborhood, Niigata City, Japan, June 2007 by Parent (Niigata Middle Class Residential Neighborhood, Waterfront) East 東. Like most [[Kanji]] characters, 東 can be pronounced in [[Sino-Japanese|Sino-Japanese vocabulary]] as "Do" or in "native"-japanese as "shigashi" depending on the context.
