Indeed, I know the word kawazu, but in my opinion it's archaic or poetic (or it might be dialectal) except for some quotations as from the Basho haiku or in a proverb: i no naka no kawazu taikai wo shirazu, meaning "A frog in the well knows nothing of the great ocean," a warning about insular views.
