Japanese people used to believe in nature as a superstition or religion for a long time. In Okinawa, they still believe in its spirits. Okinawa islands are at the bottom of economic disparities. But people from the main island of Japan tend to see Okinawa as a utopia. While bringing Okinawa as a theme, where they have many different problems, this song has been created for children. The creator has visited Okinawa as part of her fieldwork. All the characters in this work have been made after actual people.
