about us

Born and raised in the village of Yanbaru Kunigami, we thought it was a small, small village when we were young.

When you grow up.

The Warmth of People I’ve Learned from Leaving My Hometown

The richness of nature and the depth of culture I discovered upon returning to my hometown

Living in a World Natural Heritage listed village, you rarely get to experience the richness of nature

But there are people who remember the history of life with the forest and the sea.

In our daily lives, traditional culture is somehow losing its meaning, leaving only form.

There are still people who know what that means.

Some things are connected and protected by telling them.

With this in mind, we have created tours where local people can learn about Yanbaru’s rich natural environment and the culture that is closely related to it.
