The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

Fu (府) is a traditional administrative division used in the East Asian cultural sphere, translated variously as prefecture, urban prefecture or city. They were first instituted as a regular form of administrative division in the Tang Dynasty of China, but were later adopted in Vietnam, Japan and Korea. At present, only two fu still remain: Kyoto-fu and Osaka-fu in Japan.

The term fu is still used in Chinese to refer to the Provinces of Thailand, even though they are natively known as changwat. The provinces of neighbouring countries Burma, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam are all called sheng (省), the same name used for the provinces of Taiwan and Mainland China.
