Wait a minute. You backtrack. Not quite sure you believe what you just saw. Yet there it is, another person across the way with a shirt just like yours. In this crowded space, your eyes meet. A slight smile plays across your face as a friendly grin appears on theirs. You don’t run to them to introduce yourself, you don’t even wave, but you feel that moment of connection. Knowing that you're both in the same underground community called Ryukyu Rising. As the saying goes in Okinawa: イチャリバチョーデー (Ichariba Chōdē) - “though we meet but once, even by chance, we are friends for life.”
Consider this an exclusive invitation to don one of our original Ryukyu Rising designs. Not only do you have a taste for simplicity, but you have an appreciation for where it all began.
