Etymology 1[edit]

Kanji in this term
いくさ
Grade: 4
kun’yomi

From Old Japanese. Appears in the Man'yōshū, completed some time after 759 CE.[1]

Considered to derive from a compound, possibly either (ancient ikupa, modern rendering ikuha, target) + (sa, arrow), or いくふ (ancient ikupu, modern rendering ikuu, to shoot (an arrow)) + (sa, arrow). Notably, the iku in both proposed etyma appear to be cognate.[2]
