This kanji can pertain to visual barriers (e.g., curtains or partitions) but more often relates to cover-ups. Read crazy conspiracy theories about Japanese nukes and a downed flight. Learn to say, “That company hid the fraud,” “hidden responsibility for the war,” and “The prime minister tried to cover up the scandal, but that just made it worse when the newspapers discovered the truth.”
