yamori


It is geckos.
"gecko" is "yamori" in japanese. When it writes "yamori" in Kanji , it is "家守".
"家" stands for "house", "守" stands for "protect".
Therefore, The gecko is protect  a house from a harmful insects.
I was taught this by my father in childhood.
I remembered such a thing in Cambodia.
