Yanbaru Tingara Story

“Tingara” is an Okinawan dialect word meaning “Milky Way” or “galaxy.

In Okinawa, the Milky Way can be observed throughout the year, but in Yanbaru, where there are few streetlights, the band of light crossing the night sky looks beautiful.

The background music is the chirps of the Yanbaru creatures coming from the jet-black forests, and the experience of being surrounded by a star-filled sky.
