France in Japanese is 仏蘭西 which is read furansu.
The Japanese word furansu translates as "France" and is composed of the kanji (read fu) meaning "France; Buddha", (read ran) meaning "Orchid" and (read su) meaning "West."
Country names were originally translated to Japanese using a phonetic translation to kanji. These kanji were selected mainly for their pronunciation and not necessarily for their meaning. Also France is commonly written in katakana as (read furansu). The pronunciation is exactly the same and so we have included both designs here.
Translations You Can Trust We want you to be as happy with the Japanese translation as you are with Master Takase's beautiful art. So we have made it easy to confirm the translation for yourself by simply clicking on France (furansu) which links to the independent Jeffrey's Japanese English Dictionary.
