Abstract :In Brazil, there are many Uchinanchu, having built communities of Uchinanchu. We conducted research on Okinawan folk religion in São Paulo in November 2009. We attended to and researched on a mass of shijyukunichi of a Uchinanchu. This paper aims to examine, based on our research, how Okinawan folk religion is succeeded in a mass of shijyukunichi. We can recognize many similarities between the way Okinawan in Okinawa reads a mass of shijyukunichi and the way Okinawan in Brazil does. These are the similarities: the importance of Totome, Shiruife, 49 rice cakes which represent the bones of a man, a san which is a talisman against an evil spirit, and mabuiwakashi which is a very important ritual in a mass of shijyukunichi, separating a spirit of the dead from the living and sending it to the next world. And Uta, the Okinawan shaman, reads a mass of shijyukunichi, in kinawa and In Brazil too- interestingly enough, there also are Utas in Brazil. In communities of Uchinanchu in Brazil, many Uchinanchu have deep concern for Okinawan traditional folk religion and believe in it in daily life.
