    "Hi" (pronounced "hee") is the Japanese Kanji/Chinese character for "sun".

    In ordinary conversation, you can say "taiyou" (tie-yo)or "tenpi" (ten-pee).

    'taiyou' is the most adequate.

    'hi' is OK in lots of cases.

    And 'tenpi' is used in such cases as drying the laundry or making some dried food under the sun.

    there are a lot of words that you pronounce the same way but write and mean different things, so hi means light, day, sunlight, and also means fire with a different kanji.

    "日" is right, but "日" has a very general meaning. It also means "day" or "sunlight"

    "太陽"/"taiyou" is a better translation of sun.

    太/tai- means "big" or "fat"

    陽/you- means "light" or "positive ion"

    good luck.
