This kanji makes us conceive of the world thematically, linking countries in unexpected ways (e.g., those that use euros or Chinese characters). With 圏 you can also convey that a restaurant is “within a 10-minute walk” or that you’re “out of range” and can’t make a phone call. Learn to say “Tokyo Metropolitan area,” “Kanto region,” and “My family lives far from a metropolitan area.”
