What’s the word mean? Let’s see it together!
This is very irregular kanji reading. Usually, the first letter means a tiger and the second one does a staff. But this combination makes the sound ITADORI which means Reynoutria japonica, a plant name.
Itadori is a kind of perennial and it has tiny white flowers. The stem has red mottle and it looks like tiger stripe. That’s why it has a kanji character that stands for a tiger.
Additionally, the word ITA is a part of ITAI that means pain in Japanese. And DORI is another way of reading TORU that means to take away. So the word ITADORI can mean pain relief. Old Japanese people used Itadori as herbal remedy.
