The Money Frog, also known as the three legged toad or “Chan Chu” in Chinese, is said to appear every full moon near homes that will receive good news of increased wealth or abundance.

Often portrayed sitting on a bed of treasure made up of gold ingots, coins and jewels and bearing a coin in its mouth, the Money Frog is also a symbol for career luck and for the patriarch of the family. The Money Frog is also always seen biting on two strings of coins and with 7 dots on its back, depicting the Ursa Major.

Surprisingly, nine out of ten guests that dine at Myoga, comment on the bathrooms. There is an abstract ‘downtown Tokyo’ feel to them, and they host a number of flatscreens with live streaming video from the kitchen (so you can watch the chefs at work). The design was of Mike’s invention, with the assistance of internationally heralded interior designer Les Harbottle. The point of them is to add to the somewhat escapist experience that the restaurant offers.
