January

This first Kanji represents the number 1 and it represents one object or the first of something. It is pronounced ichi.

 

The next word is gatsu, which means month.  This is another kanji that is used quite a bit (every time a date is written).

Together 一月 means January.  Now since I have a birthday this month it means that 一月 has a very special place in my heart.
