GREEN FROG from KYOTO
In Japanese, the word "kaeru" means both "frog" and "return." It is said that anyone carrying this frog in a coin purse will have the good fortune of having his money returned to him.
The thing has utility! So we dropped it in my coin purse, a yellow Puwawa coin purse from Sanrio, oddly enough.
Do you have any talismans that you carry with you? Does anyone know anything more about this green frog from Kyoto?
