Explanation and Etymology - (煙草) tabako

煙草 (tabako) is a Japanese word that refers to tobacco, a plant of the solanaceous family, whose leaves are dry and used for the production of cigarettes, cigars, pipes and other related products. The word 煙草 consists of two Kanji characters: 煙 (en), which means "smoke" or "steam", and 草 (kusa), which means "plant" or "herb". The combination of these two characters represents the plant that produces smoke when burned. It is believed that tobacco was introduced in Japan by the Portuguese in the 16th century during the period of trade with the West. The word 煙草 was later created to refer to this plant, which became popular in the country. Currently, tobacco is widely used in Japan, despite growing concerns about health and increasing restrictions on smoke in public places. The word 煙草 remains the most common way to refer to tobacco in Japanese.
