(This character, 巌, is a variant form of 巖.)
Japanese shinjitai. Simplified from 巖
Historically /ihaho/. /h/ underwent a number of phonological changes. In intervocalic environments, such as this, *p → ɸ → w. Hence, *ipapo → iɸaɸo → iwawo. The distinction between /o/ and /wo/ was lost early resulting in /o/. Hence, [iwao].
