The Japanese Tree Frog is a species of tree frog distributed from Hokkaidō to Yakushima in Japan and from Korea along the Ussuri River to north-eastern China, northern Mongolia, and the southern parts of the Russian Far East. The Japanese tree frog was formerly considered to be a subspecies of the European tree frog. Wikipedia

Size: Approximately 1 and a half inches.

The word ‘frog‘ in Japanese means ‘return’, which is why the frog is considered a Japanese lucky animal and seen as good fortune in things returning.
