コイノボリー｜FIND THE LUCKY BIRD
Koinobori [Hentona Shopping Street]
We will change the image of the coin laundry the locals love while retaining its original loveliness
We hope it will continue to be loved.
An Irish husband once said that the sound of saying “coin laundry” and the song "Koi no Bo-ri" are similar.
A theme song arranged from "Koinobori" will play at the venue.
FIND THE LUCKY BIRD [Ogimi Village Former Shioya Elementary School]
I met a Yambarukuina (Okinawa rail) on the way to Hedo Misaki through Yambaru National Park.
When I first set foot on Yanbaru, I thought that it was quite extraordinary that I encountered the Yanbarukuina, so I included it in a picture I drew.
Even when people don't encounter it, they make statues of them. I felt the people’s kindness and I wanted do something similar.
I also thought to set up a way to get the Yambarukuina to be present.
You can see it in the AR at the venue, so please come and see "Yanbaru-san."
