Tips to remember the Japanese word:
Think of "shimaru" as "shi" (you might remember 'she' in English) + "maru" (which can mean 'circle' or something being encompassed), implying something being enclosed or shut.

"しまる" (shimaru) is a verb that means "to close," "to be closed," or "to be shut." It is an intransitive verb, meaning that the action is performed by something of its own, not directly by a person or an object.

– 閉まる (しまる, shimaru)
– ι–‰γ˜γ‚‹ (γ¨γ˜γ‚‹, tojiru) – More commonly used for "to close" regarding books, eyes, etc.
– 閉ざす (とざす, tozasu) – Used in more metaphorical contexts, like closing one's mind or feelings.
