“If we can discover the meaning in the trilling of a frog, perhaps we may understand why it is for us not merely noise but a song of poetry and emotion.” – Adrian Forsyth.
Kichijoji, a trendy neighborhood filled with funky shops, specialty stores and beautiful parks. Of all places around Tokyo it is one place that combines Ghibli-esque feels with a modern day appeal and in one of the streets in this bustling area you will pass by a store that stands out with its green aesthetic and unique focus: Frogs, of all shapes and sizes, all different colors and designs.
Frogs has long been believed to bring luck, prosperity and transformation. It goes all the way from ancient Egypt where Frogs are seen as a symbol of birth and fertility to the native beliefs that these small, chill, and slimy creatures brings abundance and wealth. So allow me to bring you inside a place that focuses on Frogs,only in Tokyo.
