[No.0005 Kanji] Rich

a kanji for rich
We pronounce it "tomi", meaning rich. And this kanji doesn't necessarily mean money, but also indicates abundance of something.

And, this kanji is a part of "富士山(fuji-san)". You know what? It is Mt. Fuji. So I guess Mt. Fuji was a symbol of being rich at the time when it got the name.

Note that kanji has some pronunciation. "富" is called "tomi" or "fu". These are only pronunciation as a noun. "富む(tomu)" is  a verb, for example. Please don't get confused.
