The Japanese word for pigeon is ハト hato, written with the Chinese character . It is glossed here as 'pigeon', although 'dove' could equally be used. In combination with other words, ハト hato becomes バト -bato, e.g. as in アオバト ao-bato 'blue/green pigeon'.

The name of the domesticated pigeon, do-bato literally 'earth pigeon', can be written either 土鳩 'earth pigeon' or with the Chinese character 鴿.
