#306: Kyodo Fuji (category: mountain)
Japan has many mountains whose nicknames include "Fuji" like Sanuki Fuji (refer to #305). They are called under the name of "Fuji" because their appearances are very similar to that of Mount Fuji (refer to #095).
Lots of such mountains can be found throughout Japan and they are generally called "Kyodo Fuji" as a whole. Japanese word "kyodo" is "someone's homeland" in English. So, "Kyodo Fuji" literally means "Mount Fuji in someone's homeland".
