みんなさん、こんにちわ、げんきですか。 私はスイスから来ましたが大阪に住んでいます。 A friend of mine asked me a few days ago if there is a Japanese equivalent to point out "touch wood" or "crossing fingers". I could not find anything like this in my dictionaries. Maybe because it`s kind of superstitious having no Japanese translation. I even asked Japanese people without luck. Maybe someone from the Rocket Japanese community is able to help me? どうもありがとう、ソルセレス

こんにちは! I am Japanese and I have rarely (maybe, never) heard a phrase equivalent to "touch wood" or "knock on wood" used! - Sayaka :P
