Japan’s new traffic cones come with built-in Jizō Bosatsu,
the protective deity of travellers




- quote -
Created by Fusao Hasegawa, the “Jizō Cone” features a moulded image of Jizō Bosatsu, the guardian deity of children and travellers. Known in sanskrit as “Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva”, Jizō, which literally translates to “earth womb”, is usually depicted as a robed monk with his hands clasped in prayer.
... The cones will be available in red, green, blue and yellow varieties. ...

Kaeru omamori カエル 蛙 Frog Amulet - Frosch

The word for frog is pronounced "kaeru."
It is a pun with the word "return home."
Therefore travelers carry a small frog amulet with the intent of returning safely to their family.
