When will you come back to the village?
If you use language like that, you'll give away where you're from.
I’m traveling to my hometown and I’m hoping I don’t run into anyone I know.
This is the village you came from. This is where your parents live. This is your home village (same meaning as the kanji you learned).
The reading is the same as with the kanji you learned. It's like the village vocab word goes home to its kanji every once in a while. They share the same reading origin because of this.
