Description for "SUZUKI in Kanji"
Suzuki is the second most common surname in Japan. Mr. Suzuki (Suzukishi) is one of the representative surnames in Japan. It is said to be the family name of a Shinto priest derived from the ear of rice that is enshrined at festivals and the Hontsubo bell of a shrine.
This line originated from Kii Province (Wakayama Prefecture), when the family of the Hozumi clan, who was a Shinto priest in Shingu City, Wakayama Prefecture, used the surname Suzuki.
The Suzuki family, which spread from the Tokai region to the Kanto and Tohoku regions, pronounces it as “Suzuki”, but the old Suzuki family in Wakayama and Mie prefectures still pronounce it “Susuki” without any ambiguity.
