時刻 - The Time


I took this one on the train. It reads ただいまの時刻 - tadaima no jikoku - the current time.

時 - ジ, とき
time, hour
Henshall: 135


刻 - コク, きざ・む, きざ・み
chop, mince, carve, engrave, time
Henshall: 865

An example from my dictionary:

列車は時刻通りにでますか?
(ressha ha jikoku doori ni demasu ka)
Will the train depart on time?
