 風  kaze


Explanation:
The most common word for wind is "kaze" pronounced 'kah-ze' (as in 'zest')
Breeze would be 'Soyo-Kaze' and gusty winds would be 'Toppu' (top-poo). It is interesting to note that in English, if you are sneezing you have Caught a Cold; in Japanese you have Pulled In the Wind: Kaze Wo Heeta
(Wind Pulled)
