In Japan, the frog, (蛙, kaeru), is symbolic of fertility and good fortune, and as the word in Japanese means “to return” (帰る), frogs can be linked with things/or people returning to their place of origin. They are lucky to keep around, for frogs promise good fortune and friends, (which will at some point come back) so are carried by travellers to make sure they return safely from their journeys.
