Hello. Perhaps my question is a bit stupid, but I would like to know what is the hieroglyph for "Ichijin" in Kanji :? I may have not searched enough in the I-net, so if you could give me a proper link or something, I would be very grateful :) Thanks in advance.

Ichijin could be 一陣 (いちじん) "gust of wind". Although, 一(いち), "one" + 人(じん) "person" are correct on-yomi readings, together 一人 is only pronounced "hitori", never "ichijin" or "ichinin".

Actually, "ichinin" *is* an acceptable reading, as in "ichininmae" or "serving for one person".

Agreed, I found this as well. 一人前 can be read as both いちにんまえ and ひとりまえ
