“Jiyujin” when translated to English, means “free spirit.”

However, in a small play on words (or characters, should I say) the kanji in our shop name are not the usual symbols, but instead those for “time”, “play”, and “person.”  Although phonetically read the same way, the meaning behind these characters describe what we, at Jiyujin, strive to do everyday.

Now, here`s where we get deep. To us, these characters symbolize the beauty in the finite time we have in our lives.  The beauty comes when we realize that we must spend as much time as we can, playing or enjoying our lives while meeting and learning about the people with whom we share this world.  Wow, still with me right? Good!  Well, with this in mind, we want everyone to enjoy the time we can spend together surrounded by the breathtaking Yaeyama ocean without a single care or worry.

Since English is the global language, we give our tours in both English and Japanese so travelers from all over the globe can fully enjoy their time with us in Ishigaki.  Become a jiyujin. It`s time to be free.
