BUTSU, FUTSU
hotoke
meaning: Buddha, France

仏教 == bukkyou == Buddhism
南仏 == nanfutsu== the South of France 


Left radical is 'person' (人), right radical is 'nose'. It was borrowed for its sound to express the first syllables in both 'Buddha' and 'France'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Buddha has prominent nose.'
