The photo on the right was taken in Tokyo.
On the right are fifty of the king's favorite maids and on the left is a genius scientist who worships the prince.
When the horse turned to the right, the donkey glanced right as well.
The kanji and the word are exactly the same. That means they share meanings as well.
Since this word is made up of a single kanji, it uses the kun'yomi reading. You haven't learned this reading yet, so here's a mnemonic to help you:
Look to the right. There are meat geese (みぎ) over there. What are meat geese, you ask? They're geese made of meat, that sit to the right of you, trying to get you to do bad things. Like the devil/angel motif you see in cartoons. Well there's nothing on your left. And on your right? Just meat geese. Watching you. Waiting. Geese made of meat. Telling you not to do the right thing.
