This letter has interesting background. The whole shape of the character stands for shackles.
Kanji symbols originally came from China. In ancient China, a person who got a criminal penalty was killed and thrown into the water. Under such a circumstance, being in shackles was a very light penalty compared to other punishments.
That’s why the shape of the shackles came to mean happiness.
