This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

While posting summer stuff like flowers and bugs I was really looking for something else: Frogs.
The Japanese tree frog, ニホンアマガエル  (Hyla japonica) has hands like a human and uses them to climb in plants and trees.


I heard the Daruma pond frog, ダルマガエル  (Pelophylax porosus) mostly stays in the water of paddy fields, lotus ponds etc.

I never studied the frogs before, so I might be wrong about them al, but looking at the web I guess this could be a wrinkled frog

I better buy a book
