There are many Japanese expressions that use the numerical gthree.h

Since ancient times, the numerical gthreeh has been a sacred number and called gmittsuh which is homophonous with word gmitsu gmeaning full or good fortune.

You may come across many words and phrases that use the numerical gthreeh:

hSan Shu no Jingih  or the Three Sacred Treasures@of the Imperial Throne;

hSan Sekaih or the three worlds (heaven, hell, and the world we live in);

hSannin Yoreba Monjyu no Chieh or if three people are joined  together, they have the wisdom of Bodhisattva Manjusri (god of wisdom)and more.

Thus the Japanese have liked the number three@
