Hakase! How do I remember the 16 directions, I know up to 8, but…
Indeed, the 16 directions are very complicated, with north-northwest, south-southeast, and so on. However, once you remember them, you will never forget them.
I will explain the 16 directions in this article!
It is not easy to remember the 16 directions at first.
It is very confusing to know which direction is which, isn’t it?
However, if you read this article, you will be able to memorize the 16 directions with certainty.
Let’s learn how to memorize the 16 directions with the guinea pigs in this article!

How to remember 16 directions
Hakase! How can I remember the 16 directions?
Think and remember in two steps.
Write in up to 8 directions
As Step 1, I want you to first write down up to 8 directions.
Up to 8 directions, I can do that too!
Consider 16 directions based on 8 directions
Once you have done that, there is only one more step to take. Based on the 8 directions, you will then consider the 16 directions.
For example, in the northeast area that I just enlarged, it looks like this.
So moving it from northeast to north means north-northeast, and moving it east means east-northeast! I didn’t think of it that way!
That’s right. It is difficult if you try to think of 16 directions from the beginning.
However, if you get into the habit of thinking in 8 directions first, you will not get confused.
In this article, I explained how to remember the 16 directions. This knowledge is necessary not only for Earth science but also for geography and other subjects. Make sure you memorize it and make it your own.
Can’t go wrong considering it’s 8 directions away! I’m going to tell my friends.
