  1. So denwa means light… But I’ve seen that hikari also means light… Is there any difference?

  2. denwa (電話) means “telephone.” Denki (電気) means “light” or “electricity.” Hikari (光) also means “light” but denki is more like an electric light (a light that is turned on and off) whereas hikari just means “light” not electric lights. So, if you wanted to say “I turned off the lights” you would say 電気を消しました。(denki o keshimashita) not 光を消しました。(hikari o keshimashita). Hope that helps (◕ω<)♪
