In Manyoshu, the characters “Fushi” and `“Fuji” are also used, but it seems to be true that Manyo-gana was called “Fuji” because it is a type of phonetic writing.
Today’s writing style of “Mt. Fuji” means a mountain rich in warriors, and it is believed to have been written after the Kamakura period when Bushido was developed.
There are other theories about the origin of the name, such as the Ainu word “Funchi” (the god of fire = volcano) and the Malay word “Fuji” (wonderful).
Fuji is called “Fuyo” because of the shape of the summit crater.

The theme of my life is Alternative Japan. This A mark is the current symbol of Aokimono. It is a mark that looks like the first letter of 51 Hiragana characters, "あ". Also "A" is the first letter in the alphabet. It's one of the alternative Japan style, called "Bi-Calligraphy" that I write Japanese in English and English in Japanese.
