Abstract :There was an Okinawan writer named Satoshi Miyagi, who was active from the 1930s until the beginning of the 1940s. Leaving Okinawa for Tokyo in 1921 and getting involved with the journal Kaizo as an editor, Miyagi went to Hawai'i to promote a collection of Japanese literature that his company, Kaizo-sha, published. While in Hawai'i, his longtime yearning to be a professional writer became stronger, and Miyagi published his first short stories, “The Earth — Our Home”and “The Birth of a Living.” Miyagi was instantly recognized as one of the most promising young writers, and he again went to Hawai'i in 1935. He published a collection of short stories titled Honolulu Stories in July 1936, which was based on his visits to Hawai'i. He revised Honolulu Stories, and it turned into Hawai'i in April 1946. The present discussion focuses on Miyagi and his 1946 work Hawai'i in the context of Okinawan literature, suggesting Miyagi's cross-cultural experience in Hawai'i was the driving force for him to create his story.
