​about store

The island's multi-tenant building, with its mysterious doll and a white triangular signboard. You enter the building as if summoned in, only to find an inoperative elevator. You have no choice but to take the stairs... The small shop on the 3rd floor here at Ishigaki island is sure to be a place that will become a memory of the long travel to the southern islands.

島の雑居ビル 動かないエレベーター 仕方なく登る階段






After putting an end to my work in Tokyo in 1998, I set out on my dream trip around Okinawa. I spent four months from the end of the rainy season until fall staying at the islands that make up Okinawa. There I experienced life in the southern islands that I had read about in the novels I would get lost in as a child, and found myself unable to part with Okinawa. I particularly love the abundant nature and the mood of Ishigaki island that neighbors the cozy town... Around late autumn of that year I moved to Ishigaki island and started my new life. At the time, I was doing interior design in Tokyo, but there was no place to put that experience to work on the island, so I became a youth working at a bar in the southern islands. Every day, serving drinks and doing deliveries... After 4 years I quit and became a security guard. Later I got a license to operate large buses and got a part-time job at a gasoline stand on the island. By that time I was no longer a youth, but an old man. While working I started a subsidiary business making t-shirts. In 2003, Free Fowls commenced despite having no store front. Shirts that were made were consigned to and sold at souvenir shops and general stores on the island. The company store opened the following year in 2004. The happiness and sadness spread across over 10 years continues along with the approximately 10㎡ shop which instills all the wisdom and sense that I have cultivated up to now.

My design is a MY message.


I have lived on Ishigaki island for over 15 years. A lot becomes apparent when you've been here for a long time. There's the good parts of the island, and there's the bad parts. But I love this island as a whole. This sentiment for the island that wells up from my years here is the basis for my designs. When I used to work as an architecture designer in Tokyo, a design needed a meaning and reason. I have been in environments where this beauty of function is in constant demand, and there is meaning and stories in the t-shirts and Iriomote cats that I design. My designs are my worldwide message from this small island. To put it simply, it is akin to giving you my heart.
