You are surely aware that the Japanese add a “-san” at the end of one person’s name in order to show respect. What you maybe don’t know yet is that the world “mountain” sounds the same to ”san” in their language, so if you say “mount Fuji” it in fact sounds a lot like “Fuji-san”, just like they are calling their tallest mountain like an old boss. One more thing “Fuji” literally means “Mr. Rich”, which is a very propitious meaning. Yet another reason to wear this pair!
