Story of the Kaeru (Frog)

The cute little bobble head frog that we have pictured is a product that we sell here in our store. Some of our customers have bought it to be given to friends who are about to embark on a journey. The frog is a symbol of homecoming in Japan because its name, kaeru, is a word that also means "to return". So the frog has become a symbol for returning home and a gift depicting a frog is a wish for the recipient to have a safe return.
