As I studied some Japanese, I was startled to see "Fuji" transliterated as
"Huzi", using the less-common system.

Using the more-popular form, IIrc it's "ha hi fu he ho".

(Another is "ta chi tsu te to", btw. In that case, the initial consonant
sound is different for "ta" and "chi", I'm almost sure.)
