The meaning of "Futaara"

In the past, the word "Futaara" was read aloud as "Nikou" and became the source of the place name of "Nikko", but before that, it was named "Futaarasan Shrine" in the Kujo family book of "Enki-shiki Shinto". It is said that it was read as "Futara" or "Futara" because it was read as "Futarano".[1]..Also, regarding the name of Mt. Nantaisan before Shodo climbed Mt. Nantaisan and opened "Mt. Nikko" in the Nara period, relics from the ancient tomb period were also excavated from the ruins on the mountaintop, even before Shodo. It is said that Mt. Nantaisan was "Mt. Nikko" because it is recognized that it was the object of mountain worship and it is unlikely that the name of the mountain that is the object of worship will change in various ways.[1]..In addition, it is natural to think that what was originally "Futaara" has come to be read as "Futara" due to the dropout of "A".[1].

In the upper generation, "Futa" modifies nouns / verbs and does not modify adjectives, and "Ara" is not used independently, and nouns are subordinated or adjectives / verb stems. Since it is often a part, it is natural to think that the original composition of "Futa Arayama" is "Futa Arayama" (two rough mountains).[1]..Later, it was conscious that "Futaara" was a collocation, and it came to be called "Mountain of Futaara" or "God of Futaara", but "Futa" was just a modification of "Arayama". In other words, it is said that it meant "two"[1]..At that time, these "two" were often seen as a pair of men and women, such as Mt. Nantaisan and Mt. Nantai of Mt. Tsukubasan, so Mt. Nantaisan and Mt. Nyohouzan in Nikko. Is said to point to[1].

In addition, since "Arayama" also shows awe of the spirit, it is appropriate to think of it as "a mountain with strong spiritual power", that is, "a mountain where the rough spirits calm down".[1].
