(until) + (director)
10 strokes
This is the kanji for "いたします" as in, "どう いたしまして!" (you're welcome, sir!) or "失礼いたします!" (please excuse me, madam!) ...all those polite expressions. p> However, they're usually written in hiragana these days.



Do cut the CHEEese politely. Which is to say, quietly.


Do it politely until the director tells you to stop.


いた*す most dictionaries/websites describe this as 'to bring about' which is kind of ambiguous and makes it more confusing than it is.

It's better to think of いたす as THE POLITE FORMAL VERSION OF する. (usually KANA, so I'm only givin' it one star! *) KANA


XXX 致します(いたします)

to do ★★★☆☆ F1/2 KANA

the polite form of 'suru,' used by clerks when addressing your noble presence. However, unlike 'suru', 'itashimasu' can be used with any verb.

XXX's verb form is 'masu minus': for instance, mochimasu becomes mochi itashimasu.
